Homemade ranch dressing

Store bought ranch dressing is full of all kinds of things I don't want to feed my family.  A bottle of Wishbone ranch dressing contains sugar, MSG, Propylene glycol, and tons of other ingredients that I can't pronounce.  Thankfully it is really easy to make ranch dressing at home.

1 cup mayo
1/2 cup plain greek yogurt
2 Tbs. pickle juice
1 tsp. garlic powder
2 Tbs. dried chives
2 Tbs. dried dill
2 Tbs. dried parsley

Mix everything together and taste.  I add various amounts of the above seasonings each time depending on how spicy I want it.  If you want it a bit thinner just add more pickle juice.   I usually use 2 Tbs. pickle juice for dressing but you could omit it and use this as a dip.

I'm going to try this! Kiarra loves ranch - and we are really trying to eat more natural/less chemical foods so this would be perfect!
