Homemade Ranch Dressing

Going natural and organic doesn’t mean you have to give up all of your favorite things. While many condiments, dips and spreads are packed full of preservatives and unnecessary chemicals, there is a way to have the best of both worlds. We have a simple, easy recipe for homemade ranch dressing that your family will absolutely love. Whether you use it as a dipping sauce, a veggie dip or a salad dressing, you can rest assured knowing you are giving your family something fresh that they love without added chemicals and preservatives.


  • 2 Tbsp of Sour Cream
  • 2 Tbsp of Mayonnaise
  • 1 Tbsp of Buttermilk
  • 1 Tbsp of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 tsp of Tarragon
  • 1 tsp of Shallots
  • Salt and pepper to taste

(This makes enough for individual servings)

How To:

  1. Finely dice the shallots and Taragon

  2. Mix all of the ingredients together. Blend well. Chill. Voila!

  3. Keep refrigerated when not using. (Lasts a few days in the refrigerator)

Keep in mind, this homemade recipe will have a slightly different taste than your typical store-bought preserved Buttermilk Ranch Dressing. But we have no doubt, it will become your family’s new go-to dressing of choice after the first addictive bite!
