Homemade Keto Ranch Dressing Recipe

61 ratings

Store-bought Ranch dressing usually has added sugars, but it is very simple to make at home from scratch. A super-easy way to mix up Keto and Low Carb meals is to add delicious sauces. Sauces are a great way to add fat to meals depending on your macro goals. One of the most versatile sauces is this Homemade Keto Ranch Dressing recipe. This ranch is made with mayo and sour cream. It is flavored with dried parsley, dill, and chives as well as garlic and onion powder.

Is Ranch dressing Keto-friendly?

Yes, it is. Thanks to the high-fat content, it will minimally affect blood glucose and insulin levels. This Keto Ranch also contains no sugar.

What are other variations I can try?

Adding hot sauce to Ranch is a delicious way to spice things up. Simply add enough hot sauce to your personal liking. There are many different kinds of hot sauces so use your favorite.

Can I use fresh herbs?

Most definitely! I like using fresh herbs for this recipe because the flavor is greener. You will need to use more fresh herbs than dried to get the same flavor, but as long as you taste it at the end you can adjust adding more herbs if you would like to.

    This was seriously delicious. Was out of milk so I used heavy cream. Going to add Chipotle on next batch.

      I loved this dressing. Unfortunately I didn’t have any chives but it was still great! In order to determine the serving size I weighed the finished recipe (375 grams) and divided by 10 servings they suggested for the listed macros. Each serving weighs 37-ish grams, so I just put my salad on the scale and added 37 grams. I’m still not sure how many tablespoons it was, but it was a generous amount!

        The way I calculated it would be 3 tablespoons per serving.

      This looks great! I mix the dry ingredients together with 2 T of vanilla protein powder to keep in my cupboard. I use it to season meat sometimes, but most often just mix it with Mayo for a dip. I never thought of adding sour cream and heavy whipping cream to it. I bet that’s good! I also use it with cream cheese sometimes, when making a cheeseball. Add this dry mix + shredded cheddar cheese + a few diced green olives. Stuff that in a jalapeño pepper, wrap with bacon and bake until bacon is done. Keto delight!

        How much is 1/8 of a serving? Trying to log correctly and usually go by cup increments but I just can’t figure how much 1 serving is liquid.

          2 tablespoons is one fluid ounce. The serving size is one ounce. I'd use 2 T as the measurement for a serving.

          I weighed it. You can change serving size to gram etc.

          I used this recipe. Made it with all fresh herbs. OMG! SO GOOD! I replaced onion powder with finely minced sweet onion and replaced garlic powder with mashed and finely minced garlic. No milk. Forgot to add the lemon juice. Using fresh herbs I tripled the amount. I have been making Ranch from scratch for years. Hands down best ever.

            This recipe is delicious and I can visualize how much better it would be with all fresh herbs! This time I used a mix of dry and fresh and loved it!

              This is every bit as good as the rave reviews made me think it was. I'm dying to try out a version using lowfat mayo and sour cream, because that macro is always getting away from me, and the lowfat versions of these still taste good, IMHO, without adding on a lot of carbs.

                        The furthest out use by date on the sour cream or milk or 2 weeks.

                        When I use the fresh herbs it lasts about 1 1/2 weeks, after that it is "iffy." :)

                        Good question, probably a month if you use water to thin it instead of milk. I’m going to make it today and date it. Hopefully it will last a while.
