Ranch dressing is a staple item in our household. We use it as a salad dressing, as a dip for veggie sticks and homemade pizza, and as a sandwich condiment. We've been enjoying this recipe for a few years now. The milk kefir adds wonderful flavor and a good dose of healthy probiotics to this ranch dressing.
Homemade Ranch Dressing and Dip
1 cup full-fat sour cream
1/2 cup raw milk kefir (buttermilk or plain whole milk yogurt could be substituted, but milk kefir gives the best flavor and nutrition)
1 Tb fresh lemon juice (a lemon reamer works great for getting more juice from every lemon)
1 med garlic clove, pressed (or substitute 1/4 tsp garlic powder)
1/2 tsp dried parsley
1/2 tsp onion powder
3/4 tsp fine-ground celtic sea salt
1/4 tsp freshly ground pepper
1/4 tsp dried dill
Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl or 2-cup measuring cup. (Putting all of the ingredients into a 2-cup measuring cup saves on having to dirty many different measuring cups.) Whisk or stir well to combine.
If possible, make this dressing at least an hour before it will be consumed, so the flavors have a chance to meld.
Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge. This ranch dressing will keep for at least a week. If separation occurs, just give it a quick stir before using it.
