When it comes to dips, I dare say ranch dip is likely in the number one spot. I love it too, the flavors compliment so many munchies it’s become a staple. This Homemade Ranch Dip is really not difficult to make and I love that it gives you the opportunity to be creative. Using an array of seasonings and fresh herbs, it’s the perfect accompaniment to crudites, chips or even dolloped on a baked potato. Make this Homemade Ranch Dip in advance and chill thoroughly and you’re all set to party.
If you really love dill, toss in some fresh dill in addition to the dried to give it a bit of zip. Do you enjoy garlic? Add fresh minced garlic to suit your personal taste. It’s really not just for dipping, I like to serve it in place of plain sour cream to top a loaded baked potato, too. This always seems to delight my family and guests.You can also make it low cal by adjusting the dairy using your favorite brands of a lower cal versions. I make a point to make this a couple of days in advance to give the flavors of this ranch dip time to combine and become more robust. You will be delighted with the response from your snack loving friends.
