Ranch Dressing

The Best Ranch Dressing

In my opinion, a great Ranch Dressing is NOT going to come in a bottle.  Mostly because the ingredients are so tweaked and skewed, in comparison to homemade recipes, to create a longer lasting shelf life.  So you’re never going to get the flavor that is/was originally intended, if you buy into the preservatives.  Fresh dairy is always going to conquer a powdered mix or a mix with just mayo in it.  But, if a powdered mix is all you’re using, there’s a better way to make this dressing than just following the package instructions and I’m going to show you how to do that as well.

Ranch Dressing Recipes

First of all there are many different ways to make an amazing Ranch Dressing and, yes, it can be done with a powdered mix.  The directions a package usually recommend mixing the ingredients with milk and mayo but I say that’s not enough.  The base of my recipe can be applied to this as well and that means using Buttermilk, Sour Cream and Mayonnaise.  Trust me.  You’re dressing will be twice as good just adding those other two ingredients.  But what else can you do?

If you like spicy food or dressings with a little kick to them, try adding some cayenne or dried chili flakes.  It doesn’t take much to spice it up.  Sometimes I’ll even dice a Jalapeno Pepper and add that, as well.  And, if you really want to trick it up and make more of a Mexican Style Ranch Dressing, add an Avocado and squeeze in some lime.  You’ll love it.

I while back, I posted a few salad recipes you might be interested in; Taco Salad and P.F. Chang’s Curry Chicken Salad.  And if you want to really go pro, try this Dill Havarti with Seared Peppers.  All three of these recipes are amazing, so be sure to check them out.

Poor Man's Gourmet Kitchen

I'm just a regular guy in search of his bliss and I find that bliss in food and all of its many cultural differences. A very seasoned and experience chef taught me how to use my pallet to best serve and prepare a dish with all of its natural flavors from other foods before ever introducing “forced flavoring”, such as salt. My goal isn’t just to teach how to incorporate these products into simple gourmet dishes but to show, how easy, it can be done from anyone's Kitchen with cheaper, convenient substitutions that will not only blow your mind, but insure that most no one will be able to ever tell the difference! Welcome to The Poor Man’s Gourmet Kitchen!
