Upgrade your menu with this exceptional house-made Ranch dressing. Its creamy texture and robust flavour profile surpass any shop-bought alternative, making it the perfect dipping sauce.

Crafting the Ultimate House-Made Ranch Dressing

Creating this luxurious dressing is remarkably straightforward. Its velvety texture comes from the harmonious blend of sour cream and mayonnaise, whilst buttermilk adds a tangy dimension that's impossible to replicate. A dash of Worcestershire sauce takes the flavour profile to the next level.

Essential Ingredients

Sour Cream & Mayonnaise - Employing both equally achieves optimal creaminess.

Buttermilk - This adds a rich tanginess. If unavailable, substitute with regular milk and additional lemon juice.

Worcestershire Sauce - Though not universally included, its addition significantly enhances the flavour.

Fresh Lemon Juice or White Wine Vinegar - gives the ranch dressing a refreshing lift.

Fresh Herbs - A lavish assortment of dill, parsley, and chives is recommended.

Seasonings - Onion powder, garlic powder, salt, and pepper provide the quintessential Ranch flavour.
