  1. Hello Cynthia! Love the name. Cynthia is the best name ever:) We already have one big thing in common.

    Love the colors and layout of your site. It is simple an chique.

    I make everything from scratch and especially marinades and dressings because the bottled stuff is so bad for you! I will definitely try your ranch dressing dip. It looks and sounds delicious.

    I will be bookmarking your page:)

    1. I believe our name leads to greatness, don’t you? 😉

      Thank you so much for your comments and encouragement. It always helps to have a kindred spirit share her thoughts!  

      Please check back in and let me know how you liked the dressing.  And if you had any you would like to share, I would love to see them and I’m sure my readers would as well.

      Have a great day!

  2. Hey nice article you have there. Wow what a coincidence, I just made one today, your steps is quite simplified. Nevertheless, it is pertinent to note that the ranch dressing recipe should last for about one week in the refrigerator. The ability for you to use fresh ingredients will  guarantee the dressing of lasting longer once it’s made.

    1. Thank you for you comments! I very much appreciate the feedback and I’ve made an adjustment in the recipe to note the shelf life.

  3. Wow, I had no idea it was so easy to make your own ranch dressing at home. I’ve got so many of my own recipes that I want to try this on, I can’t wait to cook something special this weekend. Have you tried this yourself? I’m prone to messing up on the first try so I wanted to know of any first-timer tips?

    1. I love ranch dressing so, yes, I have made this myself.  I would suggest that you just make according to the measurements that I have in the recipe and then adjust any flavorings as you see fit.  Let me know how it goes for you!

  4. Hi Cynthia. My kids love ranch dressing and I have tried making it before but something did not taste right. They ate it anyway, but I have not tried it since that day. Looking at your recipe, it seems like my proportions were not right and the ingredients needed revision. Garlic and parsley would certainly improve the taste of my dressing. Thank you for this recipe. I appreciate all the cooking tips that you have shared.

    1. Thank you for you kind comments! You’re lucky that your kids will eat your cooking even if it’s up to “their standards”.  You must have done something right.  I hope they will enjoy this version of the recipe.  Please let me know!
