Amazing Ranch Dressing Recipe and Pinterest

I have a new obsession with Pinterest. If you don’t know what Pinterest is, you’re living in the dark ages and probably still have a myspace page that you update regularly. Seriously, folks, get with the program! Pinterest is a website that allows you to basically “bookmark” things you see online that you like, but you bookmark with PICTURES and a link to the website page you found it on.

It is incredibly useful to keep and organize all those websites you used to “favorite” or “bookmark” and forget about. By saving each link with a picture of what inspired you, it’s much easier to remember why you fell in love with the page/recipe/idea in the first place and I find myself actually trying recipes that might’ve otherwise been long-forgotten in my favorites folder before the age of Pinterest.

This incredible ranch dressing recipe is one such little nugget of awesomeness that I remembered to make tonight after pinning it awhile back. The original blog post that inspired me can be found here. It is beyond amazing and reminds me of the ranch dressing found at Gatti’s Pizza (which is a personal addiction of mine, I might add. I go there JUST for the ranch dressing. I wish I was kidding.)

So without further ado, here’s the ranch dressing recipe that I fell in love with tonight. I will never ever be able to buy ranch dressing again. Not even from a packet. As with most items, from-scratch is almost incomparably better. You. Must. Try. This. You will not be disappointed!

Annie’s Ranch Dressing

¾ cup mayonnaise
¾ cup sour cream
1 tbsp. olive oil
1 tbsp. lemon juice
1 cup buttermilk
1 small bunch chives
Small handful parsley
1 clove garlic, chopped
½ tsp. kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper

Combine all of the ingredients in a blender or food
processor starting with ¼ cup of the buttermilk and blend for 10 seconds.  Check
the consistency and taste and blend in additional buttermilk as desired.  Taste
and adjust seasonings as necessary. Dressing will be thin, but tasty! Store in an airtight container in the
refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
