This Homemade Buttermilk Ranch Dressing is one of those “recipes” that seems like it really shouldn’t have a post all on it’s own, so I’m bringing it to you today along with another tasty appetizer snack, my Bacon Wrapped Tots!
Creamy, bright and tangy this Homemade Buttermilk Ranch Dressing is the perfect salad dressing or dipping sauce.
This Homemade Buttermilk Ranch Dressing is creamy and thick, but not too heavy. The fresh herbs like my combination of chives, parsley and dill make for a bright flavor when mixed with the buttermilk, Greek yogurt and lemon.
It seemed fitting to post one of my favorite go-to salad dressings and like my Blackberry Tarragon Salad Dressing, (see below photo) this uses Greek yogurt, though this Ranch dressing is the one you want to dip with!
It made perfect sense to counter the rich and flavorful Bacon Wrapped Tots with this Homemade Buttermilk Ranch Dressing because it is so perfect for dipping, too.
Whether on some beautiful salad greens or used for dipping and you’re set. This is so good. Enjoy!
