  • 1 Medium Bowl
  • 1 whisk
  • 1 Spoon
  • 1 Mini Food Processor optional: for a very smooth ranch (see notes)


  • 3 tbsp. Buttermilk
  • 2 tbsp. Mayonnaise best quality
  • 2 tbsp. Sour Cream
  • 1 tsp. dried Minced Onion
  • 1 tsp. dried Parsley Flakes
  • 1/2 tsp. dried Chives
  • 1/4 tsp. Garlic Powder
  • 1/4 tsp. Onion Powder
  • 1/4 tsp. dried Dill
  • 1/4 tsp. Sea Salt
  • 1/4 tsp. freshly cracked Black Pepper


  • Whisk the 3 tbsp. buttermilk, 2 tbsp. mayonnaise, and 2 tbsp. sour cream together in a medium bowl.
  • Stir in the dried herbs (1 tsp. dried minced onion, 1 tsp. dried parsley flakes, 1/2 tsp. dried chives, 1/4 tsp. each of onion powder, garlic powder, and dried dill).
  • Stir in a pinch each of salt and pepper, taste, and add more of either if preferred. For a thinner dressing, stir in more buttermilk (1 tsp. at a time) until the dressing is the consistency you like.
  • Cover and chill for an hour in the refrigerator for the best flavor, or serve immediately!


For the Smoothest Consistency: Blend the herbs (minced onion, parlsey, chives, garlic powder, onion powder, and dill) together in a mini food processor until finely ground and resembles a powder. Stir into the buttermilk, mayonnaise, and sour cream. Season with salt and pepper to taste, and add more buttermilk as needed.
