Ranch

So, we had some pizza that we bought from Costco and we were home and we thought, it'd be really nice to dip it into some ranch. We did have some ranch from the grocery store, Kraft brand in our fridge...but after eating Dion's ranch, it really just didn't do it. So, we thought, well, let's see what goes into ranch and it so turned out that we had all the ingredients! So, we made some. And now I don't think we could ever go back to anything else. Super easy to make and very delicious. It does taste better on the second day once the spices have had some time to permeate through though. This shouldn't stop you from enjoying it immediately though!

Here's the original recipe: https://barefeetinthekitchen.com/homemade-ranch-salad-dressing/

1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup buttermilk or regular milk

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt

freshly squeezed lemon juice to taste approximately 1-3 teaspoons, adjust to taste

Mix everything together for a super delicious ranch dressing!

He's not really a dipping sauce child... Astrid enjoyed it though :)
