Homemade Buttermilk Ranch Dressing


  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 6 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon minced shallot or red onion if you don't have a shallot
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh cilantro
  • 1 large garlic clove minced
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • pinch sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper


  • Mix everything together and let chill in the refrigerator to blend. I think it's better after a few hours but if you don't have that much time just make it the first part of your dinner prep and let chill while you finish the rest of your dinner.
  • This should keep well in the refrigerator for a few days at least. Stir together again before using.
