Homemade Ranch DressingPosted in : dip, dressing, food, foodie, funny, humor, recipe, salad, Uncategorized on by : Jeanette Rueb Tags: dip, easy, no-bake, snack
Today, for the first time in a long time, I have a recipe for you! It’s super easy and it’s perfect for salads or snacks. I’m talking about homemade ranch dressing — no sugar, no preservatives, and organic, if you wish.
I personally love dipping celery in ranch, but store-bought dressings tend to have a funny, chemical-y aftertaste, to me. With this recipe, I won’t have to worry about that, and neither will you!
Without further ado: The recipe!
This recipe will make about 1 1/2 cups of dressing.
¾ cup sour cream
½ cup whole milk
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped (or 1 tablespoon of dried parsley flakes)
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon onion powder
½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
A pinch (1/8 teaspoon) of dried dill
A pinch of garlic powder
Stir together the milk and the lemon juice in a small bowl and set it aside for about 5-10 minutes so the lemon juice can sour the milk.
Combine soured milk and sour cream in a medium sized bowl, and whisk them until it’s smooth. Add the dry ingredients and whisk them together until they’re thoroughly combined, and — voilà — your homemade ranch dressing is done!
To keep the dressing, place it in a mason jar and seal it tightly before putting it in the fridge. Shake the jar before each use, as the ingredients may settle out a bit. It’ll keep for a few weeks, at least (if you can avoid eating it all in the first few days!).
This is one of the easiest recipes ever and it yields one of the most delicious dips I’ve ever tasted. I might go a little lighter on the pepper, next time, but, then again, maybe not. It’s SO good. Oh my god. Enjoy.
