HOMEMADE RANCH DRESSING
HOMEMADE MAYONNAISE: (base of salad dressing)
2-1/2 cups canola oil, divided
2 eggs, room temperature
6 TBS vinegar
2 tsp dry mustard
2 tsp kosher salt
pinch cayenne pepper
To make the mayonnaise:
Place 1/4 cup of oil, salt, cayenne pepper, mustard and egg into a blender or food processor and pulse until completely blended.
SLOWLY add a thin stream of the remaining canola oil while the
appliance is running until all is processed. Add the lemon juice and
vinegar and whip until smooth and creamy. Store in a airtight container
in the refrigerator before serving.
Now that the mayonnaise is made, you will need two cups for the ranch salad dressing recipe below:
Ingredients for Homemade Ranch Dressing:
2 tablespoons dry parsley flakes
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 teaspoon onion salt
2 cups homemade mayonnaise, recipe above
1 cup homemade sour cream
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt

1 cup buttermilk*

use. This will be one of your favorite homemade salad dressings.
