This buttermilk ranch recipe has been a long one coming and you guys are going to be licking your fingers clean after one irresistible bite. I highly recommend you grab the three common ingredients on your next grocery store visit, blend it up, and drink away. YUP, I said “drink”.
it’s that good!
My kids were eating the dressing by the spoonful the first day I made it (and so was I). You see, they love BBQ Chicken Pizza and store bought ranch never EVER does justice. Am I right? or am I right?
Your kids, spouse, parents, neighbors…pretty much every single being will thank you for making this.
WANT TO SPICE IT UP?

THE POSSIBILITIES ARE ENDLESS
If you are wanting to make a healthier version of this, then opt for vegan mayo. My favorite from the beginning of time has been the Soy Free Vegan Mayo by Follow Your Heart. Other than that, organic buttermilk is pretty much the healthiest ingredient you can use in this combo. I highly recommend going with the brands listed for optimal taste, regardless of it not matching with my “organic ethics”.
I’ve read that “Best Foods” brands are available on the west of the Rocky Mountains and “Hellman’s” is availabe on the east side of them. So I am going to assume either is just fine. SIDE NOTE: I live west of the Rocky Mountains so we are all about the Best Foods brand over here. Either way, Amazon knows no borders!
A ranch dressing made with three simple ingredients, which can be combined to give you a restaurant quality ranch dressing.
- 1 package Hidden Valley Ranch Buttermilk Dressing Package (or equivalent)
- 1 cup Best Foods Brand or Hellman's Regular Mayonnaise (trust me)
- 1 cup buttermilk
Blend all of the ingredients together in a blender for about 15 seconds.
Chill for about 30 minutes.
NOTE: The dressing is good in the fridge until the buttermilk's expiration date, but I am sure you will finish it before then ;).
WANT TO MAKE A WEDGE SALAD?
Use it with…
Cut Romaine lettuce in half or quarters leaving a little bit of the end piece intact (you can also use iceberg lettuce). Take out the center most part of the lettuce, which is primarily the most bitter in Romaine Lettuce. Then fill it with your favorite ingredients! YOU FANCY HUH?
