Best Buttermilk Ranch Ever.


For as long as I can remember Ranch has always been the trashiest of trashy when it comes to dips or dressings. Working in a big resort, I was always making things like Roasted Beetroot & Pistachio Vinaigrette or Honey & Harissa Dressing….you know the fancy, pretentious stuff.

Pretty much the only Ranch dressing I’ve ever had is Hidden Valley which in all honesty…is a complete tragedy. Especially, after tasting this home made Ranch.

It is so simple, basically you put all the ingredients in a food processor or blender and blitz it up! I even use this as a dressing for Chicken Salad or Tuna Salad. So yummy!
