No fooling, this ranch dressing takes me three minutes to make (when I’m not stopping to take pictures). You can mix this up in the time it takes your kids to set the table.
And because the herbs are basically pulverized into a powder, you don’t have to wait to eat it – the flavors blend right away.You can whip up this delicious dressing in the amount of time it takes your kids to set the table. Click To Tweet
And, to make it even easier, all of the dry ingredients use the same measuring spoon, so there’s barely any clean-up. I used my kitchen scale to measure out the mayonnaise and sour cream, so I didn’t even have any measuring cups to wash.
I had this dressing for lunch today, on a Mexican Salad. This is my favorite kind of salad and it’s super easy to make. I’ll post a recipe for the salad tomorrow.
This also works great as a dip. If you want to thin it out and make it pourable you can whisk in a little milk, but I use it as-is on salads and it mixes in great.
I use a mortar and pestle to pulverize the dried herbs, but don’t worry, this recipe is still super quick even if you don’t have a mortar and pestle. You just might have to rename it “5-Minute Ranch Dressing.”
Put all of the dry ingredients in a plastic zipper baggie and press it flat while closing it, so that there’s no extra air inside. Using a rolling pin, roll it over and over until the pieces are mostly tiny. Shake the bag every once in a while to make sure you’re getting everything.
It won’t do some of the herbs quite as fine as a mortar and pestle, but that won’t matter. It will still be absolutely delicious.
After mixing everything up, you can eat it right away, or store in the fridge in an airtight container for about five days.
