The popular ranch dressing is a must especially for those who are a big fan of chicken wings!  This recipe does have a lot of steps, but is definitely thicker and has a stronger Ranch taste than standard store bought versions!


  • 1-2 cloves garlic
  • Salt to taste
  • ¼ cup Italian flat-leaf parsley
  • 2 tbsp fresh chives
  • Fresh dill to taste, optional
  • 1 cup canola oil mayonnaise
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • Buttermilk, as needed to desired consistency
  • White vinegar to taste, optional
  • Worcestershire sauce to taste, optional
  • Paprika to taste, optional
  • Cracked black pepper to taste


  1. Mince the garlic with a knife and then sprinkle about ⅛ to ¼ teaspoons of salt on it and mash it into a paste with a fork. Chop the parsley, chives and fresh dill (if using) and add to the garlic.
  2. In a bowl, combine all of the ingredients, adding other optional ingredients as you wish, tasting frequently and adjusting seasonings as needed. Chill for a couple of hours before serving, thin with milk or buttermilk if desired.
