After I was unsuccessful at finding a ranch salad dressing that fell into all my dietary needs; no canola oil, no vegetable oil, non GMO, organic, no preservative, no artificial anything and no soy… I decided to turn to my favorite chef – Gordon Ramsay to help me make my very own instead.
I’m always so inspired to cook when watching Gordon Ramsay, you can feel his passion for food through the screen! When I go to my sisters graduation in London next year, it is my plan to visit one of his restaurants and try his food first hand!
For now I will enjoy the tastes from this side of the tube.
So after doing some online digging, I was sad to discover that I couldn’t find a ranch dressing recipe from Gordon. Non the less I decided to share a close second to whatever I’m sure Gordon makes – this Buttermilk Ranch Dressing gets alot of raves and is made without mayo (which I prefer not to use in dressing).
To make your own Buttermilk Ranch Dressing you will need the following ingredients:
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 garlic clove, minced
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
pinch cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon Himalayan salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 cup flat leaf parsley, chopped
2 tablespoons fresh dill, chopped
1 tablespoons fresh chive, chopped
- Mix together the sour cream, buttermilk, garlic, Worcestershire, vinegar, cayenne, salt, and pepper.
- Add the fresh herbs.
- Stir well. Check for seasoning. I find that it needs a lot of salt and pepper. If the dressing is too thick, thin it with a little more buttermilk.
- Put in a jar, and keep in the fridge.
This makes about a mason jar full. It should stay good for about a week and it just tastes better and better as it chills.
For tips on how to dress a salad, you can watch Gordon Ramsay in this video as he makes a classic vinaigrette and dresses a fresh salad in under 2 minutes!
If you happen to know where I can find Gordon’s ranch dressing recipe… feel free to share it with me in the comments below and I will add it to this post later on!
Let me know what you and your family thought of this recipe… 🙂
