Buttermilk Ranch Dressing


This is my own creation of a buttermilk ranch dressing that I have tweaked after finding that most buttermilk ranch dressing recipes lacked the spicy element I expected them to have. This creamy buttermilk dressing is so versatile that it can be used on salads and veggies and in recipes that need an extra kick of flavor. It also tastes great in pasta salads.

Prep Time:
5 mins
Additional Time:
1 hrs
Total Time:
1 hrs 5 mins
1 1/2 cups


  • ½ cup buttermilk

  • ½ cup sour cream

  • ½ cup creamy salad dressing

  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder

  • 1 teaspoon dried dill weed

  • ½ teaspoon onion powder

  • ¼ teaspoon dry mustard

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste


  1. Whisk buttermilk, sour cream, salad dressing, cider vinegar, parsley, garlic powder, dill, onion powder, dry mustard, salt, and pepper together in a bowl. Chill in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour prior to use.

Cook's Note:

I use a store brand lite whipped salad dressing.
