Buttermilk Ranch Dressing

A quick and easy homemade Ranch dressing recipe that everyone loves!
Prep Time 10 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes


  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 teaspoon white vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1/8 teaspoon dried dill
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon dried chives
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon dry mustard


  • Combine mayo and buttermilk in a bowl and whisk until smooth. Add all seasonings and whisk to combine. Add additional buttermilk if desired for consistency. (see note below) For best results, let chill for an hour or more for flavors to intensify. Store in a lidded container in the fridge.


Note: Different mayonnaise brands produce different consistencies in this recipe. I have purposely kept the amount of buttermilk called for quite low to allow you to add more depending on the consistency. For me, about 2/3 cup buttermilk seems to be perfect, but that same amount is sometimes incredibly thick or incredibly thin for others. So just keep that in mind. Mix everything together and then add more buttermilk until it's perfect for you.
Note: all spices and herbs listed below are dried. If substituting fresh, use the ratio 1 part dry = 3 parts fresh.
