Homemade Ranch Dressing for Salad, Salmon, and More

Nothing beats this little homemade dressing.  There is no better salad dressing, dip, or base to mix in with canned salmon, chicken, or even potato salads.  In the following video, I show how to prepare the dressing and also how it can be used to make a quick batch of salmon salad and a side salad as well.  This is a must-item to make a large batch of and keep on hand.  It tastes amazing, is highly versatile, and keeps well for weeks and beyond. 

Homemade Ranch Ingredients:

  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 cups sour cream/creme fraiche
  • 1-2T chopped thyme
  • 1/2 cup chopped scallions/green onions
  • Lots of black pepper
  • Money Spice to taste

Feel free to embellish with other herbs such as chives, dill, fresh garlic, etc. 

Salmon Salad Ingredients:

  • 1 can pink salmon
  • Big blob of homemade ranch dressing
  • 1 stalk finely-diced celery

This is great with leftover chopped chicken, boiled and diced potatoes, tuna, and so on instead of the salmon.

Easy Tossed Salad Ingredients:

  • 1 Romaine heart – chopped
  • Big blob of homemade ranch dressing

Toss and add whatever ingredients you like, from warm, chopped bacon to big hunks of cheese to hard-boiled eggs.
