Easy Keto Ranch Dressing

Easy Keto Ranch DressingPin recipeFollow us 48.7k

Ranch dressing is extremely easy to make and so much better than the store-bought version. It tastes better and doesn't have any unhealthy additives and preservatives. It's ready in just a few minutes and you can keep it in the fridge for up to a week. I didn't use any buttermilk to make this dressing even more keto-friendly. I like using it in salads or as a dip for vegetables and crispy chicken drumsticks. You will never need to buy the bottled version again!

This dressing is absolutely delicious! All of my English in-laws who normally frown at salad dressings scoffed it up! 😊 Martina, I have your app and follow the blog, but I am interested in buying your cookbooks....are the recipes different from the app and blog?


Thank you so much! Yes, at leat 80% of the recipes (in most cases as many as 90%) are unique. The recipes that I sometimes include again in my books are "basic" ingredients that I then use to make other recipes (condiments, keto bread, etc).


What kind of mayo? Real mayo or miracle whip?


I always make my own: Healthy Homemade Mayo, Three Ways
Primal Kitchen Mayo is a good alternative.


How would using buttermilk have made this less keto-friendly?  Just wondering ...


Although it won't make a big difference, there are more carbs in buttermilk Smile


You do realize that buttermilk is the "milk" left over from making butter out of heavy whipping cream and therefore cannot have more carbs than the heavy whipping cream.


Although buttermilk is made from milk, you can use small amounts (such as 1/4 cup in this recipe). Mozzarella is made from milk too and it contains more carbs than cheddar, but it doesn't mean you have to avoid it Wink


Is heavy whipping the same as double cream. Pat H


Double cream is slightly higher in fat than heavy whipping cream (about 50% in double cream compared to 40% in heavy whipping cream). Either will work in this recipe.


This is delicious. Really, really good.


Do you know how many calories per serving?


Hi Mimi, it's 233 kcal (calories).


Have you tried the one with coconut milk? Which coconut milk do you recommend? Thanks!


Thank you Kelly! Yes I did. I love Aroy-D (liquid coconut milk) and any coconut cream (tinned coconut milk that "creams" in the fridge and the tin is BPA-free).


So yummy!!
