There are so many reasons to make this homemade buttermilk ranch dressing recipe, it’s hard to know where to start! First of all, ranch is so versatile—it goes on salads and pizza and is great with fresh veggies and beyond. Second, we love knowing all the ingredients are fresh, especially if you’re trying to eat organic.
Greek yogurt can be used in lieu of sour cream—it’s got fewer carbs than regular yogurt while maintaining a creamy consistency. If you don’t have buttermilk on hand, make your own by adding a tablespoon of lemon juice or vinegar to regular milk then wait 10 minutes until the mixture begins to curdle.
If you’re using fresh herbs, make sure to double the amount in this recipe. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours before serving!
