Ranch Dip

Here’s our favorite trick that we come back to time and time again: this homemade Ranch Dip Recipe! In just 5 minutes you have a stellar dip that’s irresistibly creamy, savory and fresh. No ranch seasoning packet needed: this dip uses all seasonings you probably already have on hand in your pantry. It’s the perfect party dip to throw together at moment’s notice, or a healthy snack for kids. Even eat it as an easy side at dinnertime! Let’s get mixing.

Ingredients in this ranch dip recipe

This ranch dip recipe is quick and easy: and you won’t believe the fresh flavor! Thanks to the magic of Greek yogurt, this ranch dip is a bit lighter and fresher than those that use sour cream. It’s got ⅓ of the calories, but you’d never know it here! Combined with a little mayonnaise, it’s just as full flavored as any you’ve had. Here’s what you’ll need (see the recipe below for quantities):

  • Greek yogurt, 2% or whole milk
  • Mayonnaise: using this in combination with the yogurt adds a hint of richness
  • Onion powder
  • Garlic powder
  • Dried dill
  • Salt and pepper
  • Fresh chives (optional)

The fresh chives add a great nuance to the flavor, but if you don’t have them on hand you can omit them. We grow them in our garden every summer, but in the winter fresh herbs can be expensive at the grocery. Mix everything together in a bowl, and it’s done! Simple as that.
