Ranch Dressing


Ranch dressing is probably my favorite dressing. Among the many I’ve made, this is probably the best. I saw it on the Pioneer Woman cooking show on Food Network and knew I had to make it. There’s something unique about Ree’s show. I think its something in the way she describes food, that makes your mouth water. I will say, not many people with cooking shows can do that. And the fact that the food in her show is “comfort cooking at its best”, is right up my alley. I changed this recipe a tad, as I like the sour cream taste in ranch dressing over the mayonnaise. In her recipe she calls for 2 parts mayonnaise and 1 part sour cream. I just changed it to half mayonnaise and half sour cream. I also added a little more dill. Otherwise, its delicious!
