There is nothing better than homemade dressing, store bought dressing just doesn’t do it for me. Serve this over your favorite garden salad or dip your favorite veggies in it.
I slightly modified this recipe from my friend Susan’s blog Farmgirl Fare. I love her blog, she is a former California city chick turned Missouri farm girl, complete with chickens, sheep and donkeys! I often tell her how lucky she is to have her own farm fresh eggs and fresh produce, and she often tells me how lucky I am to live near a Trader Joe’s. You can easily halve this recipe and leftovers can be stored in the fridge for about 4-5 day. Enjoy!!

  1. I can’t use buttermilk, can I replace with something?

  2. This is delicious! I really appreciate that you gave 1/4 cup serving size. That helps us portion out our calories.

  3. How long does it last in the refrigerator? 

  4. I put the ingredients into WW recipe builder and it came out to 2 smart points on blue.

  5. Best homemade ranch I’ve made! I did not use the full 2 cups of buttermilk as I wanted it a bit thicker. Don’t hesitate making this. So, good!

  6. Thank you so much for this recipe. I am on the BB program and yes, 1/4 cup of dressing is 1 point. Fabulous !, Get out the veggies!!
