Our Kind of Homemade Ranch

Semi, homemade ranch is a staple in our fridge! I’m a pretty picky ranch eater, and that even comes to when we eat out at restaurants. I’m always asking them how they make or buy their ranch before ordering it. We use ranch to dip our pizzas, vegetables, fries, in wraps, sandwiches, and on all of our salads. 

Growing up in the restaurant industry, my parents always made homemade ranch and since I’ve never been able to buy the bottled ranch in grocery stores… it just doesn’t taste the same. So this recipe is a slight spin on my parent’s restaurant recipe. I use a seasoning packet, you could buy all of the seasonings in the packet, but I opt not too and I’ve tried it and it tastes the same. So I’m all about convenience and making the ranch as fast as I can as I usually am mixing up a new batch weekly for our home. So here it is, our quick and easy semi- homemade ranch recipe. Enjoy!

When I have buttermilk on hand I will add 1/2 cup buttermilk in place of 1/2 cup of the milk. But being I don't use buttermilk regularly, I don't buy it just for this recipe and milk tastes just as great!
