ICYMI, TikTok is a great place to get simple recipes, expertly prepared in snappy little videos. This quick one for creamy ranch dressing will blow you away.
Ingredients (makes 2 cups of dressing)
- 1 cup sour cream
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise
- 1/2 cup milk
- juice of half a lemon
- 1/2 tsp. fresh dill, chopped fine
- 1/2 tsp. parsley flakes
- 1 tsp. garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp. onion powder
- 3/4 tsp. kosher salt (regular table salt is acceptable)
- 1/2 tsp. black pepper
Whisk together all of the ingredients and chill the dressing for at least 30 minutes before serving. That's it!
This is barely a recipe, but once you try it, you'll never buy another bottle of ranch without feeling guilty for not making your own. The cool thing about this recipe is that the possibilities are endless. Watching your calories? Go for lighter versions of the sour cream, mayonnaise, and milk. Not into dill? Use dried instead of fresh. If you want to make buttermilk ranch, then use 1/2 cup in lieu of the milk and lemon juice.
Other variations include adding crumbled bacon for a smoky touch, or using freshly cracked black pepper for an extra zip. The best veggies for this tangy dressing are crunchy carrots, bell peppers, cucumbers, and broccoli. Quickly blanched green beans, wax beans, or asparagus are also great with it. Don't forget some sweet cherry tomatoes!
The freshness of the ingredients makes this the perfect dip for spicy wings or crisp onion rings. Before you know it, this ranch dressing will be a family favorite.
