Homemade Ranch

Store bought ranch is never as good as from scratch. Here is my made up recipe that always tastes super fresh, and it is much healthier too.

Ranch Dressing and Dip

3/4 Cups Sour Cream
3/4 Cups Mayo
1/4 Cup of purple onion (a chunk with the skin off)
1 teaspoon of lemon juice
1/2 Cup fresh herbs, such as cilantro, mint, dill, and/or parsley
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

Blend up in your blender until smooth. Do less lemon juice if you want to make it a dip.

Other things I have used to make up this recipe. Greek yogurt, or cream cheese in place of either the mayo or sour cream. A piece of a red bell pepper instead of the purple onion.
