  • Combine ½ cup mayo, ½ cup sour cream, and ½ cup buttermilk in small bowl. Stir until completely combined using a fork or small whisk.
  • Mince 2 Tbsp. fresh dill, 2 Tbsp. fresh parsley, and 2 Tbsp. fresh chives.
  • Add 1 tsp. white wine vinegar (or distilled white vinegar), 1 tsp. lemon juice, ½ tsp. garlic powder, ½ tsp. onion powder, and ¼ tsp. kosher salt to the bowl. Stir until completely combined.
  • Add the fresh minced herbs to the bowl and stir until completely combined.
  • To Serve: This ranch dressing may be served immediately or placed in the fridge for a few hours to allow the flavors to meld.
    It may be kept in the fridge for 3-4 days in an airtight container.



*Dried herbs may be substituted for fresh herbs. Simply substitute with 2 Tbsp. each of dried dill, parsley, and chives for fresh if desired.
*If you like a thicker, creamier dressing use ¼ cup of buttermilk instead of ½ cup. If you like a thinner dressing add a bit more buttermilk to thin it out.
