Parmesan Ranch Dressing

 If I had to pick only one salad dressing to eat for the rest of my life, it would be ranch dressing.  I can eat ranch dressing on salad, with french fries, with carrot sticks, dip my pizza crusts and the list goes on.   Heck, I would even eat it off my arm. Salads have been on my mind recently and a homemade salad dressing would be perfect to enjoy with all those crisp greens.  I especially liked the fresh herbs that flavors this dressing since I'm finally getting some herbs popping up in my garden.  I know I will be making and enjoying this salad dressing again and again this summer.

1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup mayonnaise
Juice 1/2 lemon
1 Tbs rice wine vinegar
1 tsp salt seasoning
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1 tsp minced fresh dill
black pepper
2 tsp fresh minced parsley
2 tsp fresh minced chives
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese

recipe adapted from: Ranch Dressing Food.com

Blend all the ingredients except the fresh herbs and Parmesan cheese until smooth.  Finally add the fresh herbs and cheese and stir will. Taste and adjust seasoning as needed.

  6. I love ranch dressing too. And for all the reasons you do. I have to admit though, blue cheese is my absolute favorite. But, since Dudette and Hubby both don't like it, I always keep ranch in the fridge. Now I can make it from scratch!
