I usually like to keep it as simple as I can when I’m cooking. Normally, I use store bought dips. I’ve attempted to make my own blue cheese dressing and to be completely honest, I much prefer Marie Calendar’s. It’s easy and delicious. However, this ranch dressing is the exception to that rule. This dip taste better than any ranch dressing I’ve ever bought from a store. And it’s really simple to make, with just a few ingredients. I got this recipe from Kelsey’s Essentials (I love that show!) and first made it with fried pickles. If you are ever making fried pickles, I highly recommend pairing them with this recipe. I also recently made this to go with my Wonton Jalapeno Poppers. It was a nice compliment.
