Something’s hidden . . . but I don’t think it’s a valley. Food companies often throw around phrases like “wholesome ingredients” and “farm fresh,” but the fine print on the labels often tells a different story. For example, my husband’s favorite childhood dressing contains MSG, solvent-extracted vegetable oil, trans fats, artificial flavors, and several other ingredients I can’t seem to find at the farms we buy our milk, produce, and meat from.

No need to pack away those salad forks, though! Making homemade ranch dressing, mayo, ketchup, Thousand Island, BBQ sauce, honey mustard and other favorites is easier than you probably think. As a bonus, they taste better than store-bought AND you have complete say over the quality of the ingredients used.

This creamy homemade ranch dressing is a staple at my house. It takes less than five minute to make, and it’s delicious over salads or as a dip for buffalo wings, chicken nuggets or veggies. I hope you love it as much as we do!

  • Combine all ingredients in a large jar.
  • Stir until well-combined. The dressing will seem very runny at first but will thicken after it's been in the fridge for a couple of hours.
