Easy Ranch Dressing

I'm back! And it feels pretty darn good to be sitting down to write. I've missed it so. After dealing with so many technical issues for the past few months, I was starting to lose hope. My schedule also got pretty intense for awhile and what little time I did have was devoted to trying to fix things instead of creating new recipes, writing and photography. I won't lie, I lost my enthusiasm a bit. But I promise, it's all good now. I'm excited to start cranking out new ideas for you. You'll notice some of my most recent posts are missing, I'm honestly not sure if I can retrieve them, they might be ones I'll rewrite, I'm really not sure. It's not a huge setback though and I'm ready to just move forward! Thank you for sticking it out with me through all of this chaos.

I'm pretty picky about my ranch. There really aren't any bottled brands that I love, they all taste so, well, fake. I'd much rather enjoy my salad than feel like I'm choking down something.

Now that summer is officially here, you can find fresh dill everywhere. Whether you grow it yourself or pick up a bundle from the farmers' market, it's really cheap and so flavorful. In fact, I can't get enough of all the fresh herbs right now. Without adding calories, you can jazz up dishes quite simply.

You'll love how easy this ranch dressing is to make on your own, in fact the kids could even do it. While it's great for salads, it's also great for dipping those garden fresh veggies in. I actually brought dinner to a friend recently and included a jar of ranch to go along with the veggies I chopped up for snacking. In fact we're currently going through a batch every other week. If I can get the kiddos to inhale more veggies then I'm not complaining!

Easy Ranch Dressing

1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 garlic clove, minced
2-3 tbsp fresh dill, chopped
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp celery seeds

In a small bowl, whisk all ingredients together until well combined. Taste and adjust seasonings if needed. Transfer dressing to a container and store in fridge until ready to use. For best results, let chill for at least a couple hours.

Stir well before serving.
