Why I Make My Own Low Carb Ranch Dressing (And Maybe You Should Too)

low carb ranch dressing

It’s just ranch dressing. That’s all. 

Making your own low carb ranch dressing is the way to go.


Bottled store-bought ranch contains about 15 carbohydrates per 2 tablespoons and it has soy oil.

If you’re trying to keep your carb intake to no more 20 carbs per day, this won’t be practical at all.

In addition, you’ll want your low carb ranch dressing to contain a lot of good fat while you’re on the ketogenic diet.

All things considered, it will be pretty hard to find a low carb, high fat, and soy oil free option in one bottle in the grocery isle.

At the end of the day, why stress yourself out going to store to store looking for the holy grail of low carb ranch dressing when you can quickly make it at home?

Don’t be a glutton for punishment like me.While the night is young, let’s go ahead and get into the nitty gritty of making our natural ranch dressing.  

 The ingredients you need include:  

1 Cup of Mayonnaise 

¼ Cup of Butter Milk 

1/2 Teaspoon of dried dill 

1 Cup of Sour Cream 

1 Tablespoon of Dry Parsley 

1/2 Teaspoon Ground Mustard

1 Tablespoon of Onion Powder  

2 Teaspoons of Powdered Garlic 

1/4 Teaspoon Celery Salt  

1/2 Teaspoon Salt or more to taste  

Easy directions:

  1. In a large bowl, mix all the ingredients together thoroughly. Remember, taste the dressing to ensure seasoning is right.  
  2. For the best mix, stir the mixture for about 10-15 seconds until it is fully incorporated  
  3. If you’re really hungry, you can serve the Ranch dressing immediately. However, for the best taste, you can refrigerate it overnight.  
  4. Using your whisk, stir the mixture well before serving. 

You see?

Was that so hard?

didn’t think so.

In addition, you can serve it up with your favorite sandwich, salad, or a batch of tasty buffalo wings.
