Ranch Dressing Recipe – THE BEST cool, creamy, and lightened-up Ranch Dressing prepared with delicious yogurt and a variety of seasonings.

Homemade Ranch Dip in a bowl
Friends, it is time to skip the store-bought variety and know EXACTLY what you’re getting with this easy Homemade Ranch Dressing! With the help of yogurt, this Ranch Dressing is also lighter and healthier, but it is just as delicious.

And if you like appetizer-food (SUPER BOWL food) that needs dippin’, you will need this recipe because any food under the sun wants to be dipped in Ranch. It just does. I think that’s a universal thing.

Ranch Dressing in a bowl

Speaking of football, who is the underdog?? If the Bears aren’t there, I’m clueless. Besides, the underdog is usually who I like to cheer for because I don’t enjoy expected outcomes. I like some drama that involves 250-pound men and trophies.  ….while dipping all-the-finger-foods in a bowl of Ranch.

This Ranch Dressing, friends?  It involves just 6 ingredients, 4 of which are found in your spice rack. If I had to guess, I think you most likely have all the goodies on hand.

The taste, though? Seriously, it’s bomb. Try it. It tastes waaay better than the store-bought stuff, and it is waaaaay better for ya.

One other thing. If you want to thicken it up a bit, add a little more sour cream. If you want to thin it out, add a teaspoon of water, one at a time until you’ve reached desired consistency.

ENJOY!

    I have 2% plain Greek yogurt in my fridge. I am wondering if this will make it too thick. Does this recipe call for full fat or low fat yogurt? Is the cheaper plain yogurt that is thinner recommended? Thanks.
