IS RANCH DRESSING KETO?
The answer is yes, and no.
Some ranch dressings use sugar, or high fructose corn syrup, which adds carbs and of course makes them a no-no on the keto diet.
There are a few out there that do not and so they are great if you are keto but, if you are like me, I would prefer to make my own whenever possible because then I know exactly what is in what I am feeding my family and putting into my own body.
Some use things like maltodextrin or preservatives that I am just not super comfortable with.
Plus, we all know that fresh tastes best anyway!
My entire family adores ranch dressing.
My son puts ranch dressing or sour cream on just about everything!
So I knew the biggest test of this recipe would be my family. And before you think they would just tell me they like it because they want to be nice?
Ya, they are the kind of people that will tell you straight up that they never want to eat something you have made again. They don't pull any punches!
So, when they all flipped for this dressing I knew I had a winner.
I had tried a couple of other versions on them and at least one of them had something they didn't like about it. Getting them all to like it was HUGE and made me very very happy.
The downside to this whole situation is that they now love this ranch dressing and want it all of the time! So momma is a ranch dressing-making fool!!
But hey, they are eating healthy!

This is a basic breakdown of the steps involved in making Homemade Keto Ranch Dressing. You will find the full directions in the recipe card at the bottom of the post.
Place the mayonnaise and Greek yogurt into the bowl of a food processor.
Add the remaining ingredients and process.
Once blended, taste and adjust seasoning if needed.
Pour into an airtight container and chill for 1 to 2 hours before using.
Hint: allowing the dressing to chill for 1 to 2 hours improves the thickness/texture as well as the flavor of this homemade keto ranch dressing.
If you know how to make the recipe fit a certain diet, let the reader know here. Don't fake it - only provide guidance on topics you have actual experience with.
- Fresh Herbs - instead of fresh herbs you can use dried herbs. The flavor is not as strong but you would substitute 1 teaspoon of dried for 1 tablespoon of fresh.
- Dairy - I have not tried using vegan mayo and yogurt but I have used coconut milk in place of heavy cream. I would suspect that vegan substitutions would work well.
Store your homemade ranch dressing in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
I have not tried to freeze this homemade ranch dressing.
FAQ about Homemade Ranch Dressing
Well, you technically can. The ratio is 1 teaspoon of dried for 1 tablespoon of fresh. However, the flavor won't be as bright.
Store your dressing in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
You technically can freeze it but dairy doesn't freeze very well. Usually, it will mess with the texture and can change the flavor, so I have never even tried to freeze this honestly.
