Homemade Buttermilk Ranch Dressing

“Ranch dressing - that is, real homemade ranch dressing - tastes incredible. It's very different than the ranch dressing that you can buy in the store as it lacks all of the chemicals and emulsifiers that allow buttermilk to keep for six months. Real ranch dressing, like this recipe, will stay good for a week tops. After that, it's time to make more. This recipe is well worth the effort, and supports any resolution to eat more salad.” Kevin


1 clove garlic

½ teaspoon salt

1 cup buttermilk

½ cup mayonnaise

1 teaspoon lemon juice

½ teaspoon salt

¼ teaspoon mustard powder

⅛ teaspoon paprika

⅛ teaspoon black pepper

1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley

½ tablespoon minced chives


Mince the garlic with a knife and put in a medium bowl.

Sprinkle about ¼ teaspoon of salt onto the garlic.

With a fork, mash the garlic and salt into a thick paste.

Add buttermilk and mayonnaise to bowl.

Whisk together until smooth.

Add the lemon juice and spices, adjusting for taste.

Add the chopped herbs and adjusting for taste.

Mix well.

Serve on top of salad or mixed greens.

Cover remaining dressing with plastic wrap and refrigerate.

Keeps for up to a week.
