Loved this! I've been searching for a good ranch dressing recipe forever! I avoid MSG so instead of the Hidden Valley mix, I used Simply Organic. I don't like the dressing made according to the Simply Organic package directions, but I loved this variation! I also used closer to a tablespoon of the dressing mix.
I absolutely loved this recipe!!!! I had been so disappointed in bottle ranch dressing... none of them seem to taste good anymore, so I decided to look on the internet and see if anyone had a good recipe for ranch dressing and found this... this one did not disappoint. I've been making this one ever since. I'm through with bottled ranch dressing!!!! Thanks for southern_gal12000!!!!
Definetly better than bottled ranch, and I like that it does not taste "mayonaisse-y". I tasted it after an hour, but the flavor improved after a few extra hours in the refrigerator, so I would reccommend chilling for 2-3 hours.
I really liked this dressing, and followed this exactly. We will use this again, but I feel like it could use about 1 tablespoon of the ranch dressing mix versus 1 teaspoon. The garlic powder goes perfectly here, and I used low fat buttermilk with low fat mayo, and low fat sour cream. I also used the optional ingredients, the cayenne, the paprika, and some "Crazy Janes" Mixed up salt just to taste. Great recipe and will be using this often!
This is really good. Based on other reviews, I did add a little more of the ranch seasoning, and it turned out perfect. Thanks for posting.
This recipe is so quick and easy to put together and results in a delicious dressing. I followed the recipe as written. For the optional ingredients listed I used a scant 1/2 tsp paprika and several good shakes of cayenne and seasoning salt. I let it chill about an hour before using. So far I have tried it with salad, cheese sticks and sliced tomatoes. It has been great on all of them! Thanks for sharing your yummy recipe southern gal!
I used reduced fat sourcream and and replaced the buttermilk with 1% and this turned out really good. I didn't think it had enough flavor initially so I added more ranch mix. 10 times better than the bottled stuff.
I love ranch dressing, this just didn't measure up. I will say that it was creamy, but had to add a whole pkt of Hidden Valley before it was useable.
WOW, and I am one tough critic. Thanks for sharing!
This was excellent, I will never buy store bought again. Some of my family likes blue cheese dressing, so I crumbled some blue cheese on their salads. and sprinkled crispy crumbled bacon over all salads.
