Found this recipe in Better Homes cookbook. I have made a few changes I like a little more garlic taste than the recipe calls for.

I have now made this 3 times in one month! We not only love it on salad, but on roast beef/pork sandwiches. DH has requested we keep this in the refrigerator, and he is a Ranch dressing person. Made for PAC Spring 2008

My son likes to dip soda crackers in storebought Ranch dressing for a snack, so he decided to try this. Very easy, he said, and tasty. The flavor definitely improves the longer it sits, so try to make it a day ahead of when you'll need to use it.
