Best Ranch Salad Dressing Recipe: 2 Easy Recipes for Homemade Ranch Salad Dressing

"Can I have a side of ranch?" If I only had a dollar for every time I heard that when going out to eat. And while I rarely use ranch on my salads (I'm an oil and vinegar kind of person), I always have a bottle of ranch in the fridge (try my rosemary ranch marinated chicken!).

The best ranch dressing is homemade. Find me a restaurant that makes a great homemade ranch and I forget all about that oil and vinegar. Here are two versions of ranch dressing to try at home. One is a quick version when you're short on time or there's not a fresh herb within miles. The other takes a just a little more time but showcases those fresh, healthy herbs. My family loves both.
