Homemade Ranch Dip
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 snacks it's become a staple. If you really love dill, toss in some fresh dill in addition to the dried to give it a bit of zip.
The Many Ways to Utilize this Homemade Ranch Dip
Ranch dip really isn't just for dipping, I like to serve it in place of plain sour cream to top a loaded baked potato and as a condiment for sandwiches, burgers, sliders and subs. These different uses seem to always delight my family and guests.
Pro Tips for Making:
- You can make this dip lower calorie by adjusting the ingredients using your favorite brands of lighter versions of buttermilk, mayonnaise and sour cream.
- I recommend making this dip a couple of days in advance to give the flavors time to combine and become more robust. You will be delighted with the response from your snack loving friends.
- If you enjoy garlic you can add fresh minced garlic to suit your personal taste. Keep the dip chilled and eat it within a couple of days.
