Why you’ll love this Homemade Ranch Salad Dressing Recipe
We are undeniably a bunch of ranch dressing freaks in my house! Of course, the common thing to do is put it on a salad, but, I can’t lie, we even eat it with Buffalo Cauliflower Bites! Bottled ranch is fine, and I don’t mind it one bit. But, homemade is always better when it comes down to flavor. The best thing is, this ranch is made with ingredients I always have on hand and only takes a few minutes to whisk up. I like keeping this dressing on hand so that I can put out a veggie tray to go along with dinner too, the quickest side dish ever!
Ingredients for Healthy Greek Yogurt Ranch Dressing
Like most salad dressing recipes, the ingredients are simpe pantry items that if you cook a lot, you likely already have on hand. To make this homemade Ranch Dressing you’ll need:
- Greek Yogurt (I use 0% Liberte Greek, but any brand will do)
- Buttermilk (or you can use 2% milk)
- Lemon juice
- Onion powder
- Garlic powder
- Dried parsley
- Dried chives
- Dried dill
- Salt & Pepper
How to make Ranch Salad Dressing with Greek Yogurt
You will want to whisk together your greek yogurt, and seasonings until well combined. You will see that at this point you have a very thick mixture. This is the starting point for you to make your dressing as thick or as thin as you prefer. If you want a nice thick dip, you can add less buttermilk, if you like your dressing quite thin for your salads, simply add more!
To make this ranch dressing I start with 3/4 cup of Buttermilk for this recipe. If you know you want a thick dip-like consistency, start with 1/2 cup and work your way up from there. Note that you can also use regular milk for this dressing if you only have that on hand, however I would recommend using whole milk or buttermilk for the creamiest texture.
