  • ½ cup sour cream
  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • 1 TBSP dill (minced)
  • 1 TBSP chives (minced)
  • ¼ cup parsley (minced)
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 garlic clove (finely minced)
  • ½ cup buttermilk
  • Smoked kosher salt (to taste)
  • black pepper (to taste)


  1. Add all the ingredients, except the buttermilk, in a mixing bowl and whisk until combined.

  2. Whisk in the buttermilk a little at a time until you have it as thin or thick as you like.

  3. Finish with salt and pepper to taste.

  4. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, but 2+ hours is best, so all of the ingredients come together.


This buttermilk ranch dressing will last for a week or two in the refrigerator.
