The Best Ranch Dressing Recipe: What you need is just 5 minutes to make your very own creamy and tasty recipe. This Ranch Dressing Recipe contains only simple and affordable ingredients and tastes a million times better than store-bought.
I so much like ranch dressing. Up there with ketchup as one of my top three must-have condiments, I will literally put ranch on everything. Creamy, smooth, delicious, kinda salty and with just the right amount of tang, ranch is just one of those foods I keep in the house at all times.
My low carb ranch dressing is quite tasty and delicious if I do say so myself! It’s packed with big bold flavors from fresh herbs and a little tang from the vinegar.
You’re going to want to drizzle this keto ranch dressing on all of your salads from now until forever, but don’t stop there! It makes a great dip for fresh veggies too.
I’m partial to raw broccoli dipped in ranch, but use whatever low carb vegetables you prefer. Bell peppers, cucumbers, zucchini, radishes – they’re all good!
How to make ranch dressing:
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 cup heavy cream
2 tablespoons white distilled vinegar
2 cloves garlic minced
2 tablespoons dill
1 tablespoon parsley
1 teaspoon chives
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon salt
The easiest way to make this delicious Ranch Dressing is to gather all your ingredients together, a medium bowl, a few spoons, and some measuring cups.
You’ll start with some mayonnaise, sour cream, and heavy cream, etc.
If you’re not following a strict keto diet, you can use buttermilk in place of the heavy cream. You’ll save a whole lot of fat and calories.
We’ll also add in some vinegar to give it that tangy zip we all love.
If you’re using buttermilk, a tablespoon of white distilled vinegar will work nicely. If you’re using heavy cream, you’ll want to use two tablespoons of vinegar.
Grab your herbs and add them right in. You’ll want chives, parsley, and loads of dill.
I also add in freshly minced garlic and a bit of onion powder.
Salt finishes things off.
Whisk the dressing together and store it in a mason jar in the fridge for up to 5 days.
The fresh herbs and garlic mean that you don’t want to keep it past 5 days as they’ll start to spoil.
This low carb ranch dressing tastes best after it’s had a few hours in the fridge for the flavors to really meld together.
