Homemade Ranch Dressing

I posted the recipe for this homemade ranch dressing last year, but thought that it deserved another post.  I've been making it a lot lately.  It is SO much better than ranch dressing from the store.

We eat it on salad, especially spicy honey chicken salad.  We dip carrots and cucumbers into it.  And I use it as a sauce on ham and tortilla wraps for my daughter's lunch to take to school.

Ranch Dressing
recipe from my brother-in-law's mom, Becky Jones

1 quart mayonnaise (I use light)
1 quart buttermilk
2 tsp. onion salt
1 tsp. garlic salt
2 tsp. Accent salt
2 tsp. parsley flakes
1/4 tsp. pepper
1 1/2 tsp. salt

Mix well with an immersion blender or whisk by hand until smooth.  Chill before serving.

Makes a lot!  I usually make 1/4 of the recipe at a time.

Note:  This is what Accent Salt looks like...
If you don't have any Accent salt the dressing will still be yummy.  I like it best with Accent salt in it.  I'd say it's worth buying a container of it.  It'll last you a long time.  You should be able to find it at your grocery store.



  1. That looks super yummy. What is Accent salt? Is it a brand name? I love trying your recipes. You have such good taste!

  2. I loved your Ranch dressing, can't wait to make it. It is SO much better than stuff from the store. I have the same question as Mary Jane...what is Accent salt??

  3. i love this dressing too! thanks for making it for us.

  4. So, do you buy buttermilk or do you make the cheater version? and is there a substitute for the accent salt, or should I just go buy it. Also wondering what kind of lettuce you get.

  5. Thanks Jenny, found some Accent salt at good old Walmart. It was nice to have a picture of it...I found it a lot more quickly!!

  6. Made some for dinner tonight - yum! And we haven't even eaten yet. Looking forward to having it on my spicy honey chicken salad. Thanks for sharing.

  7. Accent is the trade name for one brand of monosodium glutamate. It is often used as a flavor enhancer in Asian dishes. It stimulates your taste buds.
