Home-made Ranch Dressing

Ranch is like the staple to the American salad, ever noticed? Well, I married into a family of the most domestic women I have ever met and they have truly inspired me! This recipe is so yummy and so easy!


This is from my sister-in-law, Julene. Thanks Lady!

There are a few different versions to this ranch, choose yours and make it your own!

Ranch #1


1 cup Mayonaise (not Miracle Whip)
1 cup Buttermilk
1 tsp Dried Parsley
1/2 tsp Onion Powder
1/2 tsp Salt
1/4 tsp Garlic Powder
1/4 tsp Black Pepper

Ranch #2
1 cup Mayonaise
1 cup Buttermilk
1 tbls (rounded) Dried Parsley
1/4 tsp Onion Salt
1/4 tsp Garlic Powder
1/4 tsp Black Pepper
1/8 tsp Celery Salt

Note from Julene:

Whisk everything together, if you put it in the blender, it'll be way too runny!

When I have made it I used the first recipe
(because I just barely got #2), but I put in a
bit more parsley, garlic powder, and salt. You can
use fresh garlic, garlic puree or whatever. It's
better after it has sat for a while so the parsley
isn't crunchy anymore and the spices kind of seep in.
Have fun ranchin'!


  1. Maybe it should also say that you just whisk everything together. If you use your blender you end up with Ranch Juice instead!

  2. Thanks Juge! Want to hear something funny? Mine is always too runny! Thanks for the tip!!!
