  • pinch dried thyme

Mix dried ingredients together in small bowl.

To Prepare

  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • Ranch Dressing Mix


Whisk mayonnaise and buttermilk together. Add Ranch Dressing Mix. Mix together. Refrigerate. Mmmmmmm!

Debbie, I have used this recipe only for the salad dressing, but I bet it would be great added to sour cream for a dip also. Thanks for bringing that to my attention! Hope you try it & like it!

Thanks cookiemom....so in other words, could take dry mix part and just add to a small container of sour cream? I should try that. I think the kids would like it for dipping veggies.

I'm from the UK and sometimes I hit an ingredient in a recipe I just don't have a clue what it is, and that has happened here, what is MSG?

Also if anyone knows an alternative for saltine crackers, I'd be grateful! :-) Just don't get them here.

AND I have read a lot of recipes that recommend Ranch dressing, so I'd really like to thank Cookiesmom for posting this! Again, living in the UK, we just don't have this here!

hi dragon sue. i live in malta and have the same problem trying to decipher different US terms to British. i have a feeling saltine crackers are CREAM CRACKERS.and MSG is in the herb and spice section of the supermarket. in malta, we call it monosodium glutamate.just for your info in the future, graham crackers are our digestive biscuits. and of course american cookies are OUR biscuits. american BISCUITS are our scones. hope this helps.
