Easy Ranch Dressing Recipe

Quick and Easy Ranch Dressing
  • Prep time: 5 Minutes
  • Total time: 5 Minutes
  • Serves: 36g (1.2 oz)


  • 2 Tbsp parsley, dried
  • 1 Tbsp onion powder
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp dill
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp pepper


  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • ½ cup buttermilk


Dry Ranch Seasoning Mix

  1. Mix all the dry ingredients together in a bowl. Store in an airtight container in the cupboard until required.

Wet Ranch Dressing

  1. To make the ranch dressing, mix 1-2 Tbsp of the seasoning mixture with ½ cup mayonnaise and ½ cup buttermilk.
  2. Taste and add more seasoning if required.
  3. Store in the fridge until needed.

Recipe Tips

  • Be wary of the use-by dates on the mayonnaise and buttermilk as these dates will determine how long your ranch will last. If you’re storing just the dry mix, then it should keep for a very long time.
  • For a finer mix, you can blend the dry mix in an herb blender or similar. However, I find that the mixture is perfect and doesn’t require any extra blending.
  • If you need more of the dry mix, you can double, triple, or quadruple it. As I mentioned above, it’s great to store for a long time as long as you don’t mix it with wet ingredients.
