Ranch dressing is popular because it tastes good. Ranch dressing tastes good because it is lightly seasoned buttermilk. The one thing that you need and probably don't have in your pantry is bell pepper flakes. Either dry some bell pepper in the oven (or food dehydrator if you have one) or get them from Penzey's. Their "flakes" are my "bits" so process them in a blender or coffee grinder until they are proper flakes.



  • 1/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup mayonaise
  • 2 tbsp sour cream
  • 1 small clove garlic
  • 1 small shallot
  • 1/2 tsp parsley flakes
  • 1/2 tsp dried red and green pepper flakes (or 1/4 tsp each)
  • 1/2 tsp dried minced onion
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1/8 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp white vinegar


Combine all ingredients in a cruet and shake.
