Delicious Homemade Ranch Dressing Recipe

Homemade Ranch Dressing Recipe Elizabeth Rider

I never really liked ranch dressing until I had the homemade version. Now I’m in love!

This tangy homemade ranch dressing is full of flavor and goes with just about anything.

Why Make Homemade Ranch Dressing?

Store-bought ranch dressing is full of processed ingredients and chemical preservatives, so dipping your fresh, antioxidant-rich veggies in it doesn’t really make sense. And dipping your pizza in it makes it even worse!

Making this homemade vegan / dairy-free ranch dressing is better for your taste buds and better for your health. Plus, it’s really easy to make. Store it in a Mason jar in your refrigerator or take it to a summer BBQ to impress your friends.

Homemade Ranch Dressing Ingredient Tips

I use a mix of dried and fresh herbs in this dressing, but you can mix it up depending on what you have on-hand. Keeping dried herbs around is a great, cost-effective way to add fantastic flavor to your food. Shop in the bulk aisle for herbs if you don’t think you’ll use the entire bottle within about six months, as they’ll start to lose their flavor and potency.

Fresh chives are super easy to grow and come back every year, so I almost always have fresh available. And nothing beats the taste of fresh dill. If you want to switch up the herbs, remember that dried herbs are more potent than fresh; I like to use a 2:1 ratio of fresh to dry. For instance, you can substitute 1 teaspoon dried dill for 2 teaspoons fresh.

Raw garlic is a wonderful healing superfood, and it’s also very strong. If you think raw garlic is too strong of a flavor for your family or party guests, just use granulated garlic powder; I give you both options below. I usually use fresh for the health benefits when making this myself, but I also like to be mindful of people leaving a party at my house and tasting garlic when they wake up in the morning.

Delicious Homemade Ranch Dressing Recipe

  • Author: Elizabeth Rider
  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Total Time: 10 minutes
  • Yield: About 1.5 cups 1x
  • Category: Salad Dressing
  • Method: Mix or Whisk

Description

Homemade ranch dressing is good on everything! Making your own homemade ranch dressing at home is healthier and tastier than any store-bought dressing. This recipe is vegan and dairy-free, but feel free to use any mayo that works for you.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 cup mayonnaise (I like Veganaise for a vegan & dairy-free option)
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened plain nut milk or water
  • 1 small garlic clove finely minced or pressed, OR ¾ teaspoon granulated garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 2 teaspoons dried parsley
  • 2 teaspoons fresh chopped dill
  • 2 teaspoons fresh chopped chives
  • ¼ teaspoon fine sea salt (I use Real Salt)
  • a few spins of freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Instructions

Whisk all ingredients together then transfer to an airtight glass container to store in the refrigerator. A Mason jar works perfectly.

Add more or less unsweetened plain nut milk or water to your desired consistency. Let it sit for at least 30 minutes for the flavors to develop—it’s even better the next day. It will keep for about a week in the refrigerator, so halve or double the recipe if needed.

Add it to your favorite salad, an avocado wrap, or use it as a dip for fresh summer veggies.

    Oh my goodness!! This was soooooo delicious, and easy, which is definitely a big plus!! I didn’t have dill so I added a little bit of dried green onions to give it ‘texture and thickness.’ I also added a little more water so that it would have more of a salad dressing consistency. It was amazing!! Thanks for sharing. YUM!!
