Tangy creamy and thick is my ideal ranch dressing. I prefer it more like a dip than a traditional dressing. This recipe is totally adaptable so if you prefer a thinner dressing, add a little milk or water to thin it out. It maintains the undeniable ranch flavor both ways.

What’s the difference between buttermilk ranch dressing and buttermilk ranch dip?

Ranch dressing in a bowl

Both the dressing and dip are made with buttermilk and mayonnaise in the base. The difference is that the dip typically has sour cream whereas the dressing does not. My recipe has both buttermilk (in the seasoning mix) and sour cream.

How to make homemade buttermilk ranch dressing.

This recipe starts out with a base of equal parts mayo and sour cream. To that, I add From-Scratch Buttermilk Ranch Seasoning, worcestershire sauce, a pinch of sugar, and a dash of cayenne pepper. Since the ranch seasoning has buttermilk powder in the blend you don’t need to add liquid buttermilk to the dressing.

Tip: If you would like a thinner consistency to the dressing, add a splash of plain milk or water until you’re satisfied. I suggest 1-2 tablespoons of milk or water for this recipe.
