Fermented Ranch Dressing


Here’s a salad dressing you can feel good about giving to your family. It is easy to make, full of healthy probiotics, and has a taste kids love. Use it to dress a salad or as a dip for vegetables.



  1. Put mayonnaise in a medium-sized bowl. Stir in 1/2 cup buttermilk, adding more to get the consistency you prefer.
  2. Blend in the garlic and herbs; mix well. Store in a covered jar in the refrigerator.

Use within one week if buttermilk is made from raw milk. It is normal for the dressing to get thinner the longer it is stored, so you may want to start with a fairly thick dressing.
