If you need a new favorite dressing for this summer, make it my easy Buttermilk Ranch Dressing. You'll want it every day, in a salad, a wrap, as a dip or by the spoonful.

Homemade dressings are among my favorite things to make - they are so easy. Just combine the ingredients and store it in the fridge until needed.
This dressing is super cute in a pretty glass jar, but do yourself a favor and store it as I do now - in a nice open-mouth jar, so you can get every single bit out.
What makes up the Ranch flavoring?
Ranch Dressing flavors are a combination of rich creamy fats like mayo and sour cream with herbs like parsley, chives, and dill in addition to garlic, onion, and black pepper.
How do you make buttermilk ranch?
Buttermilk ranch dressing is made by adding buttermilk to thin out the consistency of the dressing. In this recipe, I use a combination of milk and apple cider vinegar to make a homemade buttermilk. Buttermilk gives a tangy flavor to ranch dressing.

This is a simple measure and mix recipe - it's even better after a few hours in the fridge!
Add the sour cream, yogurt, and mayo to a bowl.
Add the parsley, chives, dill, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper.
Mix well, using a whisk if necessary.
Add the apple cider vinegar. Add the milk as needed, stirring constantly, to achieve the thickness you prefer.
