Easy Homemade Ranch Dip Recipe

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.

How to Make the BEST Ranch Dip Recipe

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.

  • Ingredients you’ll need to make homemade Ranch Dip: Mayonnaise, sour cream, buttermilk, fresh chives, parsley, garlic salt, onion powder, granulated garlic or garlic powder, white distilled vinegar, ground mustard, dried dill, granulated sugar and black pepper.
  • Kitchen tools you’ll need: Medium bowl, measuring cups and spoons, whisk or hand mixer.
  • You can make this dip lower calorie by adjusting the ingredients using your favorite brands of lighter versions of buttermilk, mayonnaise and sour cream.
  • The sugar used in the recipe is to balance the flavor. It doesn’t make the dressing sweet.
  • 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.
