It's been ages since I made homemade ranch dressing, and I'd forgotten how much better it is than the bottled stuff.

This was really good. I only let it sit for about 3 hours and it was already pretty thick by then. I added another splash of buttermilk and it was the perfect consistency!

I, being not American, may not be an expert on Ranch Dressings, but I loved this one! Great balance between mayonnaise, sour cream and butter milk. Better with fresh dill and parsley, but I also made it with all drier ingredients, and so long as you let it stand over night, it still tastes great!
