Creamy Parmesan Ranch Dip & Salad Dressing

Pin It

If you are one to serve your veggie tray with a bottle of ranch, here’s an easy way to bump it up to a whole new level.  {If you are like me and not a fan of bottled ranch -you’ll love this fresh ranch taste.}  This dip is easy to make and so fresh and creamy – the Parmesan is a delicious addition and so good with veggies or a salad.  You may never buy ranch again!

Creamy Parmesan Ranch Dip & Salad Dressing


3/4 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup buttermilk
2 tablespoons dried parsley
1/2 teaspoon minced dried onion
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons fresh Parmesan cheese


Mix together mayonnaise with  parsley, onion, garlic, salt and pepper.  Slowly stir in buttermilk and whisk until smooth; then add Parmesan.  Allow to chill overnight before serving (at least a few hours to let the Parmesan flavor infuse the mix.)

Of course you can lighten this recipe by using light mayo and fat-free buttermilk! 😉

Take Note:  A hollowed-out bell pepper or cabbage makes a fun serving bowl!

For Salad Dressing add just a little more buttermilk until you reach desired consistency.

Makes about 1 1/4 cups
