Homemade Ranch Dressing and Dip (probiotic : nutrient-dense)

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. I previously blogged my original ranch dressing recipe 4 years ago; this new recipe is another version of ranch dressing that we have been enjoying for about a year now.  The milk kefir adds wonderful flavor and a good dose of healthy probiotics to this ranch dressing.

Homemade Ranch Dressing and Dip
  1. 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. 
  2. If possible, make this dressing at least an hour before it will be consumed, so the flavors have a chance to meld.
  3. 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.

God bless you for mentioning saving on dirty dishes. :) There have been times that one meal had such a ridiculous amount of dishes (by following the recipe).

This is really good.. made mine in mason jar for less clean up! I would think since it has probiotics I. It would last longer or would I need to leave it on the counter for 6 or 7 hours first. I would really like to make enough for a month at one time

Glad you're enjoying this recipe! Yes, it will definitely keep for several weeks in the fridge. I make large batches now and have never had any go bad, due to the probiotics. And it does not need to be fermented at room temperature first.
