  1. That looks awesome! I’ve never made ranch at home, I always go for the classic vinegar-olive oil combo, but I may have to try this now! 🙂

  2. This looks so good! I’ve been really put off by store bought ranch dressings – dying to try yours!

      1. I made it! I didn’t have garlic powder but crushed in a few cloves (yes we are garlic lovers) and it was yum!
