Herbed Buttermilk Ranch Dressing Recipe


You’ll never buy the bottled stuff again. It’s a great, basic recipe, and it can be adapted into three different versions—Lemony Ranch, Blue Cheese Ranch, and Avocado Ranch. Drizzle over salads or use for dipping.

1 cup buttermilk
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup sour cream
1 small garlic clove, pressed
2 tablespoons minced shallot
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh chives
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon whole grain Dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon hot sauce

Combine all ingredients in a 1-qt. glass jar with a tight-fitting lid. Cover and shake vigorously to blend. Chill 30 minutes. Refrigerate in covered jar up to 1 week. Shake well before serving.
