This is the ULTIMATE restaurant-style Buttermilk Ranch Dressing recipe that my family and friends go absolutely nuts over! We love this easy homemade ranch!
Chop herbs and peel, smash, and mince garlic (or use a garlic press).
Combine in a medium bowl and whisk well. Taste and adjust spices to taste if needed.
The dressing will thicken the next day. May be thinned the following day if desired/needed.
The flavor of the garlic and herbs is even more prounounced the following day (I love it both freshly made and pulled from the fridge - so good!) and dressing will thicken in consistency after chilling.
If it’s too too garlicky the next day you can dilute it with more buttermilk/sour cream as desired. (I honeslty love when the garlic flavors is stronger so I don't) Dressing may be thinned the following day if desired/needed with a little extra buttermilk. Adjust spices/herbs to taste and enjoy! Dressing will keep approx. 4 days in a tightly sealed jar in the fridge.
Some of the ingredients can be played around with to suit your tastes but there are a few that are absolutely essential for the most glorious restaurant-style ranch dressing. Buttermilk - Sour Cream - Mayo <--- these ingredients in the measurements above are *KEY* for the base of this dressing. For best results use full-fat, trust me.
I try to have fresh chives or scallion tops on hand for this recipe b/c I love having the fresh herbs in there. When I don't dried herbs still make for a tasty dressing!
