Making your own dressing is something I never really have thought much about until lately. But when we made the Buffalo Chicken Bites last week, we wanted the dipping sauce to be a little special. Typically you think of Blue Cheese Dressing with Buffalo Chicken, but since our family doesn’t really like Blue Cheese, we decided to try our hand at Homemade Buttermilk Ranch Dressing. And it was perfect!

Super easy to whip up and you can add or subtract the flavors you and your family like. The original recipe came from Pioneer Woman, but we changed it to suit our taste.


Ranch Dressing in our house goes like wildfire! I bet we go through a bottle per week, and at the cost of dressing, around $3 per bottle, it adds up! And of course, we always seem to run out in the middle of the week and we aren’t ready to do grocery shopping.


Our apologies for the missing Ziplist recipe box the last couple days. Something has gone haywire, our designer is working on it, but for now, we will need to share the recipe “the old fashioned way!”
