The Best Homemade Buttermilk Ranch Salad Dressing

Buttermilk Ranch Salad Dressing. Most of the recipes out there for ranch salad dressing include powdered garlic and onion powder. I don’t like the idea of ‘powder’ in my food, whatever that is! Not when you can easily have the real flavors. If the Buttermilk Ranch Salad Dressing has powder in them, then just imagine what kind of unnatural thickeners and preservatives are in the store-bought varieties.

So this Buttermilk Ranch Salad Dressing is an easy and natural version of buttermilk dressing, and I think it tastes just as nice as any I’ve had.

There are many uses for buttermilk, such as a marinade/tenderizer for chicken, combining it with cream to make your own sour cream, and use in baking for extra rich flavor and soft texture. Since I started making butter (which is so much easier than you’d expect), I tend to have a lot of buttermilk on hand, which is the liquid that separates from the cream. I love not having to buy items like this at the store and being able to use them in many other recipes, such as this Buttermilk Ranch Salad Dressing.
