Homemade Buttermilk Ranch Dressing


It seems like everything we make ourselves just seems better. This one took a few tries, but we nailed it. Great on a salad, better on a grilled chicken sandwich.

Buttermilk Ranch

1 Cup “real” Mayonnaise

2/3 cup Butter Milk

1/2 cup sour cream

3 green onions (whole plant minus last inch of blades and roots)

2 cloves garlic crushed

2 tsp dried dill salt and pepper

Mince garlic and onion in food processor. Add buttermilk, mayo, dill, and sour cream. Blend until smooth. Salt and pepper to taste. We like a lot of pepper (1 tbsp), and a little salt (1/2 tsp). The longer it sits in the fridge the better the flavors blend. Minimum of 2 hours.

    What is the shelf life? Is there a way to store it for long term? MSB member here.

    Thanks,

    • We have only stored it for about a week at a time. After a while, the flavors begin to really combine to much and an off taste forms. In “shelf stable” dressings, they use preservatives that slow the bleeding of flavors.
