Easy Ranch Dip and Dressing – Gluten Free

Filed under: Appetizers & Dips,Recipes,Salads & Dressings — admin @ 3:18 pm

I’ve always loved the taste of the Ranch Dressings I used to eat at restaurants.  No bottled dressings could ever come close.  I now realize it’s because the really good dressings were freshly made on site, and didn’t come from a bottle.  Now that I know the secret, I can make a great ranch dip and dressing at home, with no expensive envelope mixes, which I know will taste great and is Gluten Free, too!

You’ll need: 

1 Cup Sour Cream

½ tsp Dried Parsley

½ tsp Dried Dill

¼ tsp Garlic Powder

¼ tsp Onion Powder

1/8 tsp Salt

1/8 tsp Pepper

Buttermilk (If you are making a Ranch Dressing, rather than a Ranch Dip) 

Place all ingredients into a bowl.

Stir until well mixed and refrigerate for at least one hour to allow flavors to blend.

Serve with assorted raw vegetables.

This dip can also easily be made into a great Buttermilk Ranch Dressing by thinning the mixture with Buttermilk until it reaches the desired consistency.


  1. This looks really good! I have never tried making this from scratch but will now – copied your recipe – Thanks!
