Ranch Dressing

  • Serves

    makes About 1 1/2 Cups

This condiment isn't just for salads—it's also a dip, a marinade, and a flavoring for snack foods (think Doritos).


  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp. onion salt
  • 14 tsp. dried chives
  • 14 tsp. dried parsley
  • 14 tsp. garlic powder
  • 14 tsp. salt
  • 14 tsp. freshly ground white pepper
  • Pinch ground dried oregano
  • 1 cup buttermilk


Step 1

Put mayonnaise, onion salt, chives, parsley, garlic powder, salt, pepper, and oregano into a medium mixing bowl and stir to combine. Beat mayonnaise mixture with an electric mixer on low speed for about 5 seconds, then increase speed to medium and beat until smooth, about 20 seconds. Scrape dressing down sides of bowl with a rubber spatula. Increase speed to high and gradually add buttermilk, beating constantly until all the buttermilk is incorporated and the dressing is very smooth, about 2 minutes more.

Step 2

Cover and refrigerate dressing for at least 12 hours. Stir dressing well before serving. Dressing will keep, refrigerated in a cover container, for up to 2 weeks.
