There are a few things in life that people possess monstrous opinions about. Politics, religion, relationships….and ranch dressing.
Ranch dressing is tricky, I tell you. How much tang? How much kick? How thin or thick should it be? You’re liable to lose a limb if you find yourself in a situation of opposing ranch opinions. I’ve been there. It wasn’t pretty.
I was surprised to find out how easy a base recipe is for ranch dressing. With a little tweaking, I am thrilled to tell you I made the perfect ranch. Well, for me. A little thin, a little spicy, a little tangy.
What’s your favorite version? Wait don’t tell me. This could be a deal-breaker.
Wait, do. I’m ready.
What it took for 1 cup, or a small mason jar:
* 1/2 cup buttermilk
* 1/4th cup sour cream
* 1/8th cup low-fat mayo
* 1 garlic clove
* pinch of cayenne
* 2 fresh thyme sprigs
* 1 tsp dill weed
* pinch of coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
Whisk all of the above in a medium bowl and voila, happiness! I mean ranch.
