The first time I made Buttermilk Ranch dressing I was beyond shocked how good it was and why I hadn’t had it before. So was my entire culinary school class. If you haven’t tried “Real” Homemade Buttermilk Ranch Dressing you cannot start to imagine what I’m talking about. It is nothing like the stuff you can buy at the grocery store. That stuff is only flavored mayonnaise. Homemade Buttermilk Ranch Dressing is full of fresh herbs, real buttermilk, creamy sour cream, this list goes on. Best part, it only takes a few minutes to make and store wonderfully in the refrigerator…

Making the Homemade Ranch Dressing

  • We will be using the food processor to combine all the ingredients making for an easy experience, but mostly to help the ingredients integrate together nicely. 
  • Before adding each ingredient into the food processor, shallot, garlic, thyme, oregano, parsley, tarragon, give them a quick chopped to assist the food processor.
  • Add all the chopped ingredients and turn on the food processor for a few moments to help further chop the ingredients.

  • Next, add all the wet/dry ingredients and turn on the food processor and allow it to do its thing. Run for 2 to 3 minutes or until ingredients are combined. 
  • Store the buttermilk ranch dressing in the refrigerator in a sealed jar. The refrigerator will chill the dressing helping it to set up and thicken. 
    Should be good for two weeks, may a little longer...
    Treat it like you would a carton of milk.
