So I made some fried chicken nuggets. Unhealthy, right? So I made a plate of salad. They should cancel each other out. Hah!
My dressing of choice? Ranch dressing naturally because that's what I made to dip my chicken nuggets in.
My first taste of Ranch dressing was at Chili's. At the time, I had no idea it was Ranch dressing. It had a sourish taste and a somewhat fermented smell (what I would call "chau sui" in Hokkien) but somehow I liked it. So I kept dipping my chicken crispers and Buffalo wings in it. Heck, I even dipped my fries in it.
Now that I know it is Ranch dressing, I found a recipe that I like very much. I like it so much that I can practically drink it. So yummy as a dip for anything deep fried and also as a salad dressing. In fact I also add it to coleslaw.
So here's the recipe which I highly recommend to Ranch dressing lovers.
Recipe source : Adapted from Platefodder
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 1 cup mayonnaise
- 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
- 1 tsp garlic powder (because I didn't have onion powder)
- 2 tsp dried parsley
- 1 tsp black pepper
- 1 tsp salt
1. Put all the ingredients into a blender and blend until everything is all combined.
2. Store in the bottle and keep refrigerated (can keep for 2 weeks)
Note : This dressing is watery since there are no thickeners added unlike bottled commercial dressing.
