With just a few staple ingredients and a handful of the perfect herbs, you can have the best Buttermilk Ranch Salad Dressing you have ever eaten. It is perfect on salads and an excellent marinade for pork chops too! This is a simple recipe that your whole family is going to love!
I remember growing up my favorite part about eating out was ordering a big salad with Homemade Buttermilk Ranch Salad Dressing, well that and the loads of bread. I'm an admitted carbivore. Don't judge. haha Truth be told, I actually always ordered extra extra dressing. I loved all the spices and the rich and creaminess of homemade dressing.
After many years of longing for that fabulous dressing I started working on a recipe and am so in love with this my buttermilk ranch salad dressing that I have been using it as a dipping sauce for everything from veggies to bread. It is Ah-mazing! You can whip it up in no time flat and enjoy it immediately or put it in the fridge and let the flavors bloom.
I like to try and chill this overnight so all the flavors can marry. However, we are not that patient around her. It is fabulous eaten right away, but spectacular the next day.
My favorite part is that it encourages my 3 year old to eat raw veggies. I can give my munchkin a plate of otherwise avoided raw veggies and she will try them because the dressing is so good. Even better is that she dips in it and she gets a small portion because it is not as thick as a dip. SCORE!
What is your favorite dressing?
