Story
Who doesn’t love ranch salad dressing? Homemade ranch dressing is that much better. Ranch dressing may be the most requested dressing in restaurants. Before ranch dressing became a commercial blockbuster, I made this type of dressing for sandwiches at home. When Hidden Valley hit the market some decades ago, my friends thought Hidden Valley had stolen my homemade dressing idea. The fact is, this type of creamy dressing is part of many cultures. It is easy to make at home and adds great sparkle to a meal. In fact, once you learn this process, you will probably never buy a commercial version again. Homemade ranch dressing wins the taste test and it is a great value.
