Simple Homemade Ranch Dressing or Veggie Dip

It's sad that it took me so long, but I've finally conquered making another household staple from scratch! I scoured the internet looking for decent ranch dressing recipes, and after a couple of memorable failures, I stumbled upon this one. I like it, the kids like it, and it's easy to make. Definitely a winner I'll be making again and again (especially as the fresh veggies start coming in!)

Ranch Dressing or Veggie Dip
¼ cup milk or buttermilk
1 cup mayonnaise
½ cup sour cream
¼ tsp chopped fresh dill (or 1 tsp dry dill)
1 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley (or 1 tsp dry)
1 teaspoon chopped fresh chives (or 1 tsp onion powder)
1 clove garlic, minced (or 1 teaspoon garlic powder)
Mix together well.  If it’s too thick for salad dressing, add a little milk.  If it’s too thin for a ranch veggie dip, add a little sour cream (and more herbs/spices as needed.)


  1. Love this! Especially you doing the trial and error work for me. ;)

  2. This sounds really good, I have a child that is allergic to so much stuff that he has to have a lot of homemade foods and stumbling on your blog has really helped thank you. Tabitha
