Tuesday Tips: Extremely Simple Ranch Dressing

Almost every week in my exhaustive reporting of our every dinner, I list ranch dressing. More than one person* has asked me about this. Do I buy it? What do I buy? Or do I make it? And if so, how?

So I figured I should just answer all these burning questions here and now: I make it. And this is how.

1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup sour cream (for a thicker dip), plain yogurt, or buttermilk (for a thinner dressing)
1.5 teaspoons dried dill weed
1-1.5 teaspoons garlic powder (depending on how fond of garlic you are--I use 1.5 because I am Very Fond)
a few grinds of black pepper

Put it all in a jar or bowl, mix with a fork or whisk until smooth, and that's it.

You can also use some onion powder in place of some of the garlic powder, but for some reason, I only ever have garlic powder.

There! The Internet is a better place because there is one more recipe for ranch dressing on it, I'm sure. 

And as a bonus, the Internet now has a very bad photo of said dressing on a very unexciting salad.

Have a nice Tuesday.
