how to make homemade buttermilk ranch dip
In order to make a delicious buttermilk ranch dip, you will need the following ingredients:
Greek Yogurt – This is what gives your dip its thick consistency and rich flavor. You can buy this at most grocery stores or online if they don’t carry it locally (we recommend Fage brand).
Buttermilk – You can also find this at most grocery stores or online (we recommend Daisy brand).
Garlic Powder – This adds flavor to your dip. Use fresh garlic if you have it, but dried works just fine too!
Onion Powder – Like garlic powder, onion powder gives that delicious savory taste to your dip (if you don’t have onion powder, minced onions work just fine too!)
Salt and Pepper – These two seasonings are essential for any dish! Use them sparingly as they can easily overpower other flavors in your dip.
In addition to these ingredients, you will also need:
Ranch Seasoning Mix – This is what gives your dip its traditional ranch flavor. You can find this in the spice aisle at most grocery stores or online (we recommend McCormick brand).
You will also need a bowl, spoon, and measuring cups/spoons.
Steps to making homemade buttermilk ranch dip:
Now that you have all of the ingredients you need, let’s get started on making your own buttermilk ranch dip!
The first step to making this recipe is combining all of the ingredients in a large bowl until well mixed together. Greek yogurt, buttermilk, garlic powder and onion powder give this dip its traditional ranch flavor while salt and pepper add just enough spice without overpowering anything else on your plate! Use as much or little of each ingredient depending on how strong you want the taste to be.
The second step is adding in some seasoning mix from an envelope packet that comes with your favorite brand of ranch dressing (we like Hidden Valley). We’re going to use about two tablespoons for every one cup of yogurt which should be enough seasoning without being too much.
The third step is stirring everything together until well combined – this will take some time so don’t worry if it doesn’t seem like the ingredients are mixing well at first! The last thing you want is lumps in your dip; therefore, make sure there are no clumps before serving or eating.
The fourth step – refrigerate for about two hours before serving so that all of the flavors can meld together and give you a delicious ranch flavor with Greek yogurt instead of sour cream!
And that’s it! You’ve now made your very own buttermilk ranch dip. Serve with some fresh vegetables, chips, or even use them as a dressing for salads! This dip is sure to be a hit at your next party or gathering
