I’ve been making The Pioneer Woman‘s homemade ranch sauce for years, but I never really thought to blog about it because, well, how photographic is ranch sauce? Right? (#bloggerwoes). But when Gaby and I whipped up these simple sandwiches for our party a little while ago, we made absolute sure to incorporate it. And when we received Heidi‘s gorgeous photos*, it just seemed like the right time to share my Ree secret. It’s something that we literally have on hand at all times, and both Justin and I would legitimately bathe in it if it were deemed appropriate. We slather it on top of sandwiches, use baby carrots as homemade ranch vehicles, we dip our pizza crust in its magnificence… it’s just one of those little things that you wouldn’t really think to make yourself until you do, and then you never go back.
*I mean, Heidi might be the only one on the face of the planet who can make a stinkin’ sandwich look BEAUTIFUL

Homemade Ranch Sauce
This homemade ranch dressing is significantly tastier than the store bought version!
Using a sharp knife, mince the garlic, add the salt and then mash it all together with a fork until a paste forms
In a small bowl, mix together all of the ingredients (including the garlic paste). Start by incorporating 1/4 cup of the buttermilk and stir, adding more buttermilk until desired consistency is reached.
Chill in fridge for a couple of hours to really let all of those ingredients get in there. Thin with more buttermilk before serving, if required!
