    Ranch Dressing Recipe

    Why buy store bought bottled dressings when you can make your own homemade dressing.  You will know exactly what is in it and it tastes way better! So say goodbye Hidden Valley Ranch. So if you have ever wondered how to make ranch dressing just mix mayo, sour cream, buttermilk together with spices. The best part of making your own dressing is that you can adjust the seasonings! Sometimes I like to add extra dill! If you have time, make this ranch dressing recipe ahead.  I think it tastes better the next day!

      This sounds easy enough! Just gotta buy some buttermilk and dill! The link for the ranch dip is bad. I tried to follow it but got an error message. Thanks for sharing this recipe!

      Check the date on your mayo and sour cream. It should be good until at least the earliest of the two.
