HomemadeRanchDressing

Seriously, I made a salad to go along side a spaghetti dinner I made one night. I went to pull out the ranch dressing only to find we were apparently all out. Thankfully no one told me and I came up with this recipe with the ingredients that I had on hand. I seriously will never buy Ranch dressing again because this Homemade Ranch Dressing Recipe is far beyond what I had expected to taste that night!

I have been keeping a mason jar of the Homemade Ranch Dressing Recipe in our fridge. I have found the kiddos dipping their celery and carrots in it so I can honestly say that this recipe is kid approved!

Ingredients:

1/2 c milk
3 tbsp sour cream/ranch packet mixture
1 tbsp mayo
1 tsp dill weed/cloves/parsley
1 tsp spicy mustard
Pepper to taste

Before you begin you’ll need to use a Ranch Dressing Dip Packet along with a 12 oz. Tub of sour cream and mix together. We just happened to have this on hand as I’ve been munching on it throughout the day with veggies….hey Momma needs a quick snack throughout the day, so don’t judge!

It can also be a healthier alternative to those fire-free versions that replace marshmallows with frosting. Make room for a pan in your freezer and get ready to enjoy the praise for your ingenuity.
