Homemade Ranch Dressing

My husband considers himself an aficionado of many things, and one of them is ranch dressing. He has settled for Hidden Valley, but only because it's ranch, not because he thinks it's the best ranch dressing there is. Until I made this recipe, he had not tasted a homemade ranch that he was willing to ally with, and wave goodbye to the MSG-filled version. So you can see why this was such a success for me to discover this recipe by salt & lavender. Thank you, thank you, thank you! I can't wait for you to try it out, and let me know what you think.

  • ▢ 1 cup mayo
  • ▢ 1/2 cup sour cream or Greek yogurt
  • ▢ 1 tablespoon fresh parsley chopped finely
  • ▢ 1-2 cloves garlic minced
  • ▢ 1/4 teaspoon dried dill
  • ▢ 1 tablespoon fresh chives chopped (or 1/2 tablespoon dried chives)
  • ▢ 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • ▢ 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • ▢ Salt & pepper to taste


Prep ingredients.
Add all ingredients to a jar and shake vigorously. Alternatively, whisk them together in a small bowl.
Dressing can be used immediately or you can refrigerate it for a few hours for it to have a thicker consistency. Enjoy on salads, as a dip, or as a spread on wraps/sandwiches. Keep refrigerated and use within a few days to be safe.


  • This makes enough dressing for a few large salads (it makes about 1.5 cups).
