Organic Buttermilk Ranch Salad Dressing Recipe

From the kitchen of Dr. Randall Hansen

What follows is a fairly simple recipe for making the best all-natural buttermilk ranch dressing -- with no added sugars, preservatives, or other ingredients. Keto-friendly.

It takes about 5-10 minutes to prepare (a bit longer if you make your own mayo and buttermilk) and is ready for use or can be chilled for later use. I suggest placing the dressing in several mason jars.


Purchase organic ingredients to keep your salad dressing as clean as possible.

  • 1 jar of 32 oz. healthy mayonnaise (or make your own*)

  • 2 1/2 cups of organic buttermilk (or make your own**)

  • 3 teaspoons of minced dried onion

  • 10 tablespoons of dried parsley

  • 3-4 teaspoons of minced garlic or Garlic Gold nuggets (or five small cloves of garlic, minced, with 1 tablespoon of avocado or olive oil)

  • 1/2 teaspoon of crushed chilli flakes and/or chili hot sauce

  • 1 teaspoon of freshly ground pepper

  • 1+ teaspoon Mrs. Dash "Table Blend" or similar to taste

  • 1 teaspoon Himalayan sea salt to taste

  • 1 16 oz sour cream


Put all the ingredients in a bowl, starting with the mayonnaise and buttermilk, and blend together with a whisk. Ladle into vessels and refrigerate.

* It's easy to make your own mayonnaise, but you need an immersion blender and...

Mix the first five ingredients; then very slowly add the oil as you are blending until you get a rich and creamy blend.

  • 3 eggs (room temperature)

  • 1/2 teaspoon of mustard

  • 1/2 teaspoon of sea salt (or other salt)

  • 1/2 teaspoon of pepper

  • 1/4 cup lemon juice

  • 1-1/2 cups avocado oil (simply the best; or high-end olive oil)

** It's also very easy to make your own buttermilk...

Pour lemon juice into the milk, mix, and let stand for about 10 minutes. Done.

  • 1 cup of whole milk, organic when possible (or half-and-half or heavy cream)
