Homemade Ranch Dressing

This homemade ranch dressing is a rich and creamy blend of mayonnaise, sour cream, buttermilk and plenty of herbs and seasonings. This dressing is SO much better than the store bought kind and also happens to be super easy to make.

  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon green onions thinly sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic minced
  • 2 teaspoons fresh parsley minced
  • 2 teaspoons fresh dill minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper


  • Place all of the ingredients in a medium bowl or a jar.
  • If using a bowl, whisk everything together until well combined.
  • For a jar, seal the jar and shake well to combine.
  • Chill the dressing for at least 30 minutes, then serve and enjoy.


  1. The dressing will stay fresh in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
  2. I think that fresh herbs taste best in this recipe, but you can use dried herbs if that's what you have on hand. You'll want to use 1/3 of the amount of dried herbs because they have a stronger flavor than fresh herbs.
