Fabulous dressing! It's great to find a buttermilk ranch dressing that doesn't contain mayo! Even though I like mayo this was a really refreshing change especially if you're looking to cut fat and calories. I used low-fat buttermilk and a light sour cream. I upped the dill a bit and used fresh chives instead of dried. I added a bit of sugar to taste and it as perfect for salads and as a veggie dip!
This was a miss for Hubs and me - as in, we missed the slight tang of the mayonnaise! Adding a squeeze of lemon juice was a real improvement, but without it this was flat tasting - essentially lightly seasoned and thinned out sour cream. If not mayo, add a dribble of vinegar or a squeeze of fresh lemon juice.
Yummy! We do like Mayo, but I wanted to do a healthier alternative. I actually use 1 cup fat free plain yogurt, and 1/3 cup Light Sour Cream, and 1/3 cup Veganaise grapeseed oil Mayo. (sometimes a splash of buttermilk too) I'm sure it would be great as written though, and the spices are just perfect! My husband likes a thick dressing and LOTS of it. He is also so picky about his Ranch (he was attached to the bottled stuff) But he absolutely LOVES this. He eats it every day at lunch on his Salads. I did NOT want to be feeding him MSG and tons of fat and preservatives everyday, so this recipe is a Lifesaver!
Great substitute! I personally do not like mayo and I do not like the taste of the store bought ranch. When preparing this, I did not use salt and I used tarragon instead of chives (I didn't have any). I will make this again.
I love this! It works well as a salad dressing or dip for veggies. I used it as a dressing for potato salad and it was delicious. When I first tasted it I thought something was missing something. I added 1/2 tsp. of sugar and thought it was perfect. Thanks!
This recipe great but I added about two tablespoons of vinegar and it made it even better!
this is delicious. It is good with veggies and on salads. It is even good on your fingers. I am going to use it the next time I make hot wings,too. Thank you so much for a recipe for ranch dressing that I don't feel guilty about eating and doesn't pack on the pounds.
This is a great little mayo-free dressing! In an attempt to eat healthier I was looking for low-fat/fat free dressing recipes and found this one. I made it but didn’t use it for a day, so it set in the refrigerator overnight and that allowed the flavors to combine. I’m really glad to have this recipe; it’s hands down a better option than the low-fat/fat free dressings in the store.
