Gluten-Free Homemade Ranch Dip or Dressing recipe
My kids are big fans of ranch dressing so I thought, why not try it right now? I normally don’t make everything from scratch but I was curious to see if it was worth it to make my own.
Assuming you have the ingredients in your kitchen (which I usually do), this can be whipped up in less than 5 minutes. It’s always better if it sets but if you can’t wait, don’t worry, it’s still great.
When I made it, I called the kids over for a taste test. They grabbed some carrots from the fridge and dug in. My son then announced “That’s the best ranch dressing I ever had”. Ok, there’s my motivation!
Gluten-Free Ranch Dip or Dressing
Makes 1 1/2 cups
1/2 c mayonnaise*
1 c sour cream*
1 Tbl chopped dried parsley (or 2 Tbl fresh)
1/2 tsp dry dill (or 1 tsp fresh, chopped)
1/2 tsp sea or Kosher salt
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
1 Tbl white vinegar
*For dairy-free, use 1 1/2 cups of a soy based mayonnaise
Note: make sure the mayonnaise is gluten-free. Some people are sensitive to dried herbs, especially those in bulk.
To make dip, mix all ingredients. Place in the fridge and wait at least 30 minutes before using.
To make dressing, mix all ingredients plus 1-2 Tbl milk to make it more pourable. Follow directions above.
