Ranch! Who doesn’t love Ranch? Well actually, if I’m (Marlee) being perfectly honest, I used to HATE ranch. I thought ranch was the most disgusting sauce there was. And then one day, Christie, decided that we should make our own, and then she forced me to taste it and lo and behold, I didn’t hate it. Shocker.
From there on out, it opened a whole new door of flavor and dipping sauce possibilities. You can use this with carrots, french fries, chicken tenders, burgers, fried pickles, salads, sandwich spreads, just about anything. While the ingredients definitely scared me at first, once it’s mixed together, it becomes a magically delicious sauce that you could literally eat by the spoonful.
We gladly dedicate this recipe to our sweet little Marin, who absolutely LOVES ranch.
- ½ cup sour cream
- ½ cup buttermilk
- ¼ cup mayonnaise
- 2 teaspoons garlic, minced
- 2 tablespoons fresh dill, chopped
- 1 tablespoon fresh parsley
- ¼ cup fresh chives, finely chopped
- 1—2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
- Pinch of Cayenne Pepper
- Kosher Salt
Step 1: In a medium bowl, combine everything but the salt and pepper. Mix until everything comes together.
Step 2: Taste and adjust the seasoning, add salt and pepper to your liking. Chill until ready to serve.
TYL TIP: What’s great about this recipe is you can adjust the herbs to your liking. Don’t like dill? Add more Chives. Hate chives? Add tarragon. It’s really up to you, and what your taste buds crave!
