Best Ranch Dressing
Recipe from Scratch

This creamy homemade ranch dressing recipe will become a family favorite.  What makes this so wonderful, is when you want to make a batch, the dry ingredients are already mixed together.  All you have to do is add the wet ingredients and place in the refrigerator to chill for a few hours. 

The recipe makes almost 2 quarts of salad dressing; works well to make only half of the recipe too.

Salads taste so much better with homemade salad dressing.  Offering the best homemade condiment recipes and more.  Be sure to check out more recipes for salad dressing at the end of the page.

One thing that is wonderful dunked in ranch dressing is potato wedges.  I love ranch mixed with blue cheese dressing for chicken wings and of course it's the bomb on top of a fresh salad.
