Making your own salad dressings is fast and easy, and never fails to impress.  Once you start making your own, you’ll find it very difficult to spend money on store bought versions.  This Buttermilk Ranch Dressing can be modified using low fat versions of any of the dairy components, but for consistency and flavor, I’d recommend using at least one of them at Full Fat-Full Throttle.  It’s a salad – aren’t you already behaving yourself?

  • 1 Cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 Cup plain greek yogurt
  • 1/2 Cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 tsp Garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp Onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Black pepper
  • 3 tbsp Finely chopped parsley
  • 3 tbsp Finely chopped dill
  • 3 tbsp Finely chopped chives


  • As always, I recommend proper mise en place, or getting all your ingredients together before you start. Unfortunately, at the time I made this batch of dressing, New Jersey was apparently undergoing a bizarre fresh chive drought, so I used dry chives. In a pinch, any of the fresh herbs can be substituted with dry herbs, just use 1 tablespoon instead of 3 and allow time for the herbs to rehydrate before serving. Place all the ingredients in a medium bowl and whisk to combine. That’s all there is to it. Pour into a resealable container, such as a large mason jar, and refrigerate.
  • Pour over your favorite salad, drizzle over pizza (I hear people do that 🤷🏻‍♀️), or use as a dip for fancy crudités. The dressing will last up to one week in the refrigerator. As if.
