A great Ranch Dressing recipe that is easy to make, you won’t buy commercial Ranch Dressing again.

Buttermilk Ranch Dressing

Buttermilk ranch dressing is a creamy, tangy dressing made from buttermilk, mayonnaise, herbs (such as parsley, and chives), and spices (like garlic powder, and black pepper). It's a versatile condiment used as a salad dressing, dip for vegetables or chicken wings, or drizzled over potatoes or sandwiches.

  • Remove blade from food processor and put the Chives (10g), and Parsley (15g) and mix well with either a spatula or whisk.

I put this recipe together using multiple sources from around the internet.  This was a dressing we used in our restaurants. 
Add dill for additional flavour if you so desire.
