Recipe by: Chef John V., A Good Cooking Recipe!

History: I was tired of searching for a Ranch dressing that contained no MSG, so I made my own!

Description: Creamy Ranch Salad Dressing is very popular but often contains MSG, this one doesn't and there are no other weird chemicals either!

Serving size: 1 quart

Preparation time: about 10 minutes


1 cup mayonnaise 
1 cup sour cream
1 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 tbsp. onion, minced
1/2 clove garlic---1/2 tsp. minced
1 tbsp. parsley, finely chopped 
2 tbsp. dill, fresh or 1 tbsp. dried
1/2 tsp. oregano
2 tbsp. cider vinegar
1 tbsp. lemon juice
1 tsp. salt 
2 tsp. sugar
1 tsp. black pepper 


Combine in a blender and mix well to incorporate all the ingredients. Store refrigerated for up to one month in a clean air tight container. It great on romaine lettuce with tomatoes and cucumbers---don't forget the croutons!
