Transcript:Homemade Ranch DressingHi, I'm Rachel Edelman for About.com Food. Today I'm going to show you how to make your own ranch dressing.
Ranch Dressing IngredientsFor this recipe you will need:
- 7 saltine crackers
- 2 tablespoons garlic salt
- 2 tablespoons onion powder
- 3/4 cup dry minced parsley flakes
- 1/4 cup dry minced onion
- 1 tablespoon dry dillweed
- 2 tablespoons garlic powder
- 1 cup mayonnaise
- 1 cup buttermilk
Combine Dry Ranch MixI'm going to make a dry ranch mix that you can use to make dressing or use in other kinds of recipes.
First, blend crackers in an electric blender on high speed until powdered. Now add the parsley, the minced onion, and the dill weed. Blend again until it is powdered. Then, pour the mixture into a bowl. Next, stir in the garlic salt, onion powder, and garlic powder.
Store this dry mix in a container with a tight-fitting lid at room temperature for up to 1 year.
Blend Wet IngredientsTo make the dressing, combine the mayonnaise, buttermilk, and 1 tablespoon of mix. Blend well and serve over your favorite salad.
