Jalapeno Ranch Dressing

Rating: 4.73 stars
A spicy twist on traditional ranch dressing. I use this on taco salads and as a dipping sauce for taquitos, mini-tacos, jalapeno poppers, etc. It's good with or without the avocado! Add more peppers to taste. I make a batch with habaneros for my father-in-law, too!

Ranch dressing connoisseurs will love this recipe! It is a staple in our household and we make a fresh batch every week.

Ranch Dressing with Fresh Herbs

Rating: 4.73 stars
This dressing packs a punch of flavor without the use of dried herbs or spices. I wanted a recipe that explodes with freshness, a bit of tang, and traditional ranch flavor. It can be made on the lighter side if you wish. Use it to dip veggies or decadent foods such as fried onion rings or chicken strips. Stores well in the refrigerator. To lighten the calorie count, use light mayonnaise and light sour cream. You can even substitute plain yogurt for the sour cream if you like, but it will alter the taste somewhat.

Ranch Dressing II

Rating: 4.64 stars
This ranch dressing is great because it doesn't have all the chemicals and preservatives that many do. You can also use buttermilk in place of the sour cream, if you like.

Jalapeno Ranch Salad Dressing

Rating: 4.65 stars
Cool, creamy, and spicy. Crazy good salad dressing you could also use as a dip. This recipe is a lot like the dip they serve at Chuy's, which is a restaurant we have in Texas.

Dry Buttermilk Ranch Mix

Rating: 4.57 stars
I never buy anything premade anymore. I have to know what I'm eating. Ranch dressing mix is one that I miss. I perused many recipes before coming up with my favorite.

Dry Ranch Mix

Rating: 4.64 stars
A WONDERFUL dry ranch mix you put together yourself, then just mix with mayo and buttermilk. Get your seasonings on the 'ethnic' or 'Mexican' aisle of the market in bags; much cheaper! Enjoy!

Buttermilk Peppercorn Ranch Salad Dressing

Rating: 4 stars

Simple and delicious. Came up with this recipe when trying to duplicate a local pizza restaurant's peppercorn ranch dressing that we love. This dressing goes great with Romaine lettuce, sliced cherry tomatoes, and red onion with fresh bacon crumbled on top. Refrigerate overnight for best taste.
