Homemade Ranch Dip Recipe

Ranch is a kid favorite around here. But, ranch dip from the store is full of MSG and rancid oils, not stellar nutrition. I have found though, ranch dip is super easy to make at home and your kids will love it. (Adults love it too!)

Homemade dips and dressings are so easy to make. I love it because I KNOW what is going in our diet, unlike store version. Also, making dips and dressing is very economical. It totally saves money to make your own. Check out this Italian vinaigrette and this balsamic dressing. They are both easy and yummy!

Are you on pinterest? You kind all of my recipes plus many more on my boards.

Do you make dressings at home? What are your favorites?

    Yum, I miss ranch dressing! I’ve made several variations of balsamic vinaigrette, and a spicy caesar dressing, but never ranch. :) This looks like a great recipe, and so simple. thanks!

    I like the idea of using greek yogurt in place of mayo as a reader said above. We use greek yogurt in place of sour cream in our home so I guess I could replace the sour cream and the mayo in your recipe with all greek yogurt. I may give this a whirl.
