Make Your Own Ranch Dressing

Stella just LOVES ranch dressing and when she was on her salad making fix we were out of ranch dressing – but no fear!  My aunt has shared this recipe around the family and many make it and we all love it – so much better than store bought.  I had never made it, but we needed dressing and we had all the ingredients in the house – so a making I did!

This dressing is so creamy and full of flavor – it compliments anything you put it on – salad, carrots, broccoli…  One of Stella’s friends was over and we made pizza and she asked for some ranch dressing to dip her crust in – she couldn’t believe that we had made the dressing!
