Low-Fat Buttermilk Ranch Dressing

Oh, ranch dressing, how I love thee! Perfect for salad, dipping veggies, pizza crust. So good, you could bathe in it. Ok, wait…no, that’s gross. Maybe chocolate, but I’m not sure I love ranch dressing that much…

ANYWAY…As much as I love ranch dressing, I have found that I hate pretty much all bottled ranch dressings. I feel like I have tried every brand in existence and I just can’t find one that I like enough to finish or buy again. And don’t even get me started on low-fat ranch dressings. Most of them are just horrid and have a weird chemically taste to me. Blech!

Low-Fat Buttermilk Ranch Dressing

If I would have known earlier that it was so easy to make my own ranch dressing AND that it would actually taste good, I would have saved myself a lot of money! And best of all, it’s also low in fat! This recipe makes a good amount of dressing too so you can keep a bottle stashed in your fridge to have your own low-fat buttermilk ranch dressing whenever you want!
