New and Improved Ranch Dressing Recipe

Holy shit you guys. I posted a ranch dressing recipe a while ago, but I wasn’t super thrilled with it. Well, I made ranch tonight and changed it a little bit and it was really good. Here’s the new recipe:

Holy Shit! Awesome Ranch Dressing


  • 3/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 3/4 cup sour cream (light is ok)
  • 1 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon dried chives
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper and/or fresh cracked pepper to taste
  • 1/8 teaspoon dried dill (optional)

I use heaping measurements of the chives and parsley and barely heaping measurements of the garlic powder and onion powder.


Throw everything in a large bowl and stir like crazy until smooth and well-blended. Add extra buttermilk if you like a thinner ranch at any time. Refrigerate (duh). I store this in a glass jar.

For a low-tech version, leave out the green stuff (chives, parsley, and dill).

For chipotle ranch, omit dill and add 1 to 1 1/2 tablespoons adobo sauce from a can of chipotle peppers.
