Bottled dressings are the hidden evil of your *healthy* salad. The bottles in the grocery store are packed full of ingredients you can’t pronounce and if you can’t pronounce it then chances are it’s probably not something you want to be eating.
The good news is, making your own is super easy! It’s also absolutely delicious, we are ranch dressings snobs in this house and we put our stamp of approval on this one.
And the best part: no setting in the fridge waiting for it to thicken, it’s ready to serve the minute you make it.
- 1/2 cup Yogurt
- 1/2 cup Mayo
- 1 tsp. Parsley Flakes
- 1/2 tsp Minced Onion
- 1/2 tsp Salt
- dash of Ground Pepper
- 1 Clove Garlic (Minced)
- Optional: Milk
- Combine all ingredients in a mason jar and stir well.
- Keep it thick for dipping or thin it out with a splash of milk to pour over salad!

Wow! I had no idea ranch dressing is so easy to make! Thanks for sharing!
Katie @ Cup of Tea Blog says
Yum! This looks so yummy! Does it have to be a particular type of yogurt? I always have plain greek yogurt on hand. I assume that will work, but maybe make it a bit thicker?
The Realistic Mama says
Plain yogurt for sure. 😉 But I’ve never tried Greek, if it’s thicker just add a little bit of milk. After you try it we would love to hear how it goes!
Sounds super easy and yummy! Thanks for sharing!
No idea that it was so simple! Thanks for sharing
How long does this last before it spoils?
It never last that long in our house so I can’t say for sure! But if you don’t add milk and keep it to only yogurt and mayo it should last you quite a while! Probably close to the expiration of the yogurt, I would think.
What kind of yogurt do you use for this recipe?
We use organic PLAIN full fat yogurt.
Would it work with all yogurt instead of yogurt + mayo?
Unfortunately, I don’t think so. I wish there was a good alternative for the mayo in the recipe but we’ve yet to try a recipe without mayo that everyone here approves on.
