Homemade Buttermilk Ranch & 30+ Homemade Dressing Recipes

 I want to share my favorite dressing recipe, as part of the sauce series. Ranch is by far the most popular dressing out there and it happens to be my absolute favorite! This Buttermilk Ranch dressing in particular.

Well, this is the last “sauce” recipe for this series. But I’m not done with sharing sauces, not even! I’m just done for the week and for this set. Feel free to leave me comments about the sauces that you want to see in part two of basic sauce recipes! Yes, there will be a party two!

I wanted to wrap things up with ranch dressing because I put that stuff of everything! No joke, I’ve put it on French Toast once. It was not very good, but I had to try. This kind of gives you an idea of just how much I love it.

What makes my version of this dressing special, in my opinion, is the  fresh cracked peppercorn and fresh herbs! This dressing is packed with amazing fresh flavors that would give any salad or sandwich extra oomph!

  1. Yep, you were right… I’m in heaven! I’m such a saucy kind of gal. So, I’m all about this homemade buttermilk(!) ranch.

  2. I agree with your take on fresh herbs –they take the recipe to another level. I can hardly stand bought dressings. There is something about them that sticks in my throat, especially the Italian dressing! My hubby likes the Honey Mustard but the ones I’ve tasted have not done anything for me. Like I mentioned in my blog, the first thing we do when we arrive in Florida for our three month say is to find fresh basil and rosemary. I would buy a few more but we then would have to worry about taking them home with us. I wouldn’t have the heart to just leave them to chance. Thank you for your sauces — I do plan on trying them and I’m sure as with your other recipes they will be delicious.

  3. Thanks for this great collection Lyuba, I have been pinning away~

  4. Hi Lyuba! Stopping by from Show Stopper Saturday, and defintely wanted to check out these dressings. I’ve been trying to get more in the habbit of making my own dressings instead of the bottled stuff. Homemade always tastes better, and you never know what’s in that bottled stuff. Thanks for a great collection!! ~Erin

    How much salt and peppercorn do you use for this recipe?

    • Alena, salt and pepper is always to taste. I can’t really tell you how much because you have a different salt tolerance and may like things more or less salty. Add less that you like, taste it, add more as needed!
      I hope you enjoy it!!
