You Can’t Beat Creamy Goodness On Top of A Fresh Salad


Ranch Dressing
If your kids are like mine, you can’t keep enough ranch dressing at your house. My four-year-old son literally drinks the small to-go containers from Geno’s Pizza when we order pizza instead of dipping his pizza in it. One of my favorite things to eat is a good fresh salad with homemade ranch dressing. This ranch dressing recipe was shared with me by Tommy Jay’s Aunt Brenda, and it beats any bottled Ranch dressing hands down. One great thing about this recipe is that once you mix all your ranch spices together, you have a jar of dry ingredients that will last for a while for every time you want to make another batch of ranch dressing. You will need 3 large mason jars for this recipe. When making the ranch dressing, one jar will be to store the ranch seasoning in, and the other two jars will be to store your dressing. Once ranch dressing is made, it can be stored up to two weeks in the refrigerator.

First, make your Dry Ranch Mix. Mix the following dry ingredients together in a mason jar.

Dry Ranch Mix
1/4 cup Black Pepper
1 1/2 cup Parsley
1/2 cup Garlic Salt
2 tablespoons Salt
1/4 cup Garlic Powder
3/4 cup Onion Powder
2 tablespoons Dill Weed

Next, it’s time to make the dressing. In a large bowl, mix the ingredients below and stir with a whisk. Then, place ranch dressing into your other two mason jars and keep refrigerated.

Ranch Dressing
3 Tablespoons of Dry Mix
2 cups of Mayonnaise
2 cups of Buttermilk
1 1/2 cup of Sour Cream (This = a 16oz container)
1 teaspoon of Lemon Juice

Now, you are ready for a yummy salad with this homemade ranch dressing! Enjoy!
