Have you ever read the ingredients on a bottle of Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing? I used to buy it because Celia loved dipping vegetables in it, but when I realized there were 21 ingredients in it including MSG and many others that sounded like they were developed in a chemistry lab rather than produced on a farm in a valley, I created my own healthy recipe.

Celia likes this version even more than the bottled ranch dressing I used to buy. Here’s the homemade ranch dressing recipe we love so much:


  • 2 Tbsp. sour cream or Greek yogurt
  • 2 Tbsp. mayonnaise
  • 2 Tbsp. reduced-fat buttermilk
  • 1 tsp. white wine vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh chives, minced
  • 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp. dried dill
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  • 1/8 tsp. black pepper


In a serving bowl or jar, whisk the sour cream through black pepper together with a fork.  Serve with fresh vegetables and store any leftovers in a jar for up to 3 days.
