If someone asked me what my favorite condiment was, the answer is easy for me. Ranch! I love dipping celery, sugar snap peas, and carrots in ranch. It is an easy snack and I usually keep a tub of ranch in my fridge for this reason. This ranch is so flavorful!

Why wouldn’t you just buy ranch to save time?

You don’t know what is in all those ranch bottles. There are probably so many preservatives so this way you know your ranch doesn’t. You can buy preservative free ranch but usually it is costly. I promise you this ranch is so tangy and you can modify the thickness by how much buttermilk you add. I used dried ingredients instead of fresh because it is just as good and so I can have them on hand the next time I want to make the ranch again.
