Restaurant Style Ranch Dressing
I have never been satisfied with store bought or ranch dressing recipes. This one is thick, fresh tasting and doesn't have that "mayonnaise" flavor. Tastes very similar to that dressing from that famed "aussie" steak restaurant if you add paprika and cayenne to it. This is my own recipe and I had a party and served it with fresh veggies and it got rave reviews. Hope you like it.
- Ready In:
- 2⁄3 cup sour cream (add more for thicker dressing or dip)
- 2⁄3 cup mayonnaise
- 2⁄3 cup buttermilk
- 1 teaspoon buttermilk ranch salad dressing mix
- 1⁄2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon onion powder
- 1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄8 teaspoon black pepper
- 1⁄4 teaspoon paprika (optional)
- cayenne (optional)
- season salt (optional)
- Mix all ingredients well and chill for about an hour (I used a food processor to mix).

My son is a Ranch FREAK! When I had him try this he just kept saying, "Oh MOM! You did it!!" I work at a restaurant and usually bring home a nice helping once or twice a week (we have great ranch). Quarantine = no work = no ranch!! I followed the recipe excluding cayenne, adding a bit of dill weed. I will definitely be making this recipe often! I usually have all the ingredients on hand and it is MUCH better than any bottle we have ever purchased. Thank you!
I’m a ranch snob, and this is FANTASTIC! I hate store bought ranch, and tried other homemade ranch recipes with 0 luck. This tastes exactly like restaurant ranch! I added a few shakes of dill, but tasted it beforehand and it was still excellent!! I also used an organic ranch seasoning packet to avoid the MSG. This recipe is a total game changer!! You won’t be disappointed
Won't lie, I added about half a cup more buttermilk, a half package of the seasoning, and it was perfect. We wanted it closer to restaurant style, which is thinner. Otherwise, great amount of mayo and sour cream to keep it from being too strong of a flavour for those 2. Other recipes call for WAAAAAY too much mayo.
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.
