Easy Homemade Ranch Dressing


One comment I get daily is that “I am a busy working parent and I do not have the time to make healthy meals for my family.” I can relate, honestly I can! Craig and I work non-stop and we also home-school our 2 cuties. There are many days that I do not feel like cooking and that is why I plan ahead. I also have found many tricks to make the ketogenic lifestyle easier.

We love ranch dressing but I have been unable to find one at the store that doesn’t have canola oil or some sort of sugar. Even the brands that are in the refrigerated section are filled with junk. Not to mention they are about $5 a bottle! Check out this video I made on how easy it is to make your own dressing to have in the fridge for easy keto meals.

We love this dressing on chicken wings, salad, slow cooker ranch chicken, even our keto hamburgers! It also tastes great on my Keto Loaded “Fries” from my Keto Comfort Foods Cookbook! 

We no longer sell spice mixes. Below is the recipe.

We can’t thank you enough for your love and support!

    What about Primal Kitchen’s Ranch Dressing? Does it have any ingredients in it that you do not approve of? Thanks, Penny

    Maria, what are the “fries in the photo? Looks sooo yummy!

  • Kristine NORTHEY says:

    Thankyou Maria this is fantastic! I also cannot find anything appropriate on the shelves in Perth Western Australia. All have the wrong types of oil in them, no matter how healthy and lovely all of the rest of the ingredients may or may not be. This recipe of yours is so easy and basic and i Have everything already. Also love the testimonies above

    Hi Maria! Could you do a post about Keto for weight loss for nursing moms? I’ve been Keto for 3 years and remained Keto my entire pregnancy even though I increased my carbs to eat extra veggies and low carb fruits like berries and melon. I know I was in ketosis the entire pregnancy from urinalysis strips. Now I’m 9 months post partum and struggling to lose the last 15 lbs from the 35 I gained while pregnant (went to 42 weeks!) Whenever I eat strict Keto (20 carbs or less per day) my milk supply goes DOWN. Help??!!

    I have tried to search your site but haven’t seen info and I know it’s here because you cover just about everything. Is there a safe way to do Keto whilst having large gallstones? I am a member of some keto groups and they mention some people get gallbladder issues while doing keto. I know I have large gallstones so I was wondering if that would make it worse. I am working with a natural health practitioner to try and avoid surgery but over the past couple of years my symptoms have gotten worse and doctors aren’t much help if blood work looks ok and scans look ok(aside from large gallstones). My symptoms worry me a lot because I have upper body itching a lot, constant belching/reflux, pain on either side, lots of nausea. I am due to for HIDA scan to see if that shows anything but I’m exhausted with going to the doctor all the time and not getting any help.
