At one time I used to buy jars of the ranch dip and salsa out of the store. Until, I started to go to restaurants and began cooking at home I started to see I was selling myself short. When you make it from scratch it’s always better. This dip is great because unlike ranch dressing it’s much thicker and heartier providing you more of those rich flavors in every bite.

How To Make Ranch Dip
Making ranch dip is so easy. You’ll be surprised that you have been buying it all this time. First, gather the list of ingredients needed. Now, if you rather use something like Hidden Valley ranch seasoning that is fine. It’s a bit cheating but no worries it’ll stay between us.
To start, in a medium bowl add in sour cream and mayo. Then, mix these two together. Next, add in all the seasonings and herbs.
So, at this point I always say taste to liking when it comes to salt content.
Lastly, serve with your favorite dipping items. The options are limitless here. Dips are so fun and everyone can enjoy them together.
What To Serve With Dip
- Chicken Wings
- Veggies (broccoli, carrots, cucumbers, tomatoes, etc.)
How To Store
If you’ve ever made a homemade dip or dressing you will know the longer they sit the better. This gives the flavors the chance to work together and everything becomes even better. After you make the dip place in a sealed storage container. The ranch dip will keep for about 5-7 days in the refrigerator. Note, the ranch will last as long as the weakest ingredient. Mayo and sour cream last a little of time, with sour cream being the least.
