  • Begin by preparing the jalapeño peppers. Slice them in half lengthwise, remove the seeds and membranes (if you prefer less heat), and finely chop the peppers.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine the mayonnaise, sour cream, and buttermilk. Stir until smooth and well combined.
  • Add the chopped jalapeño peppers, minced garlic, fresh parsley, dill, and chives to the bowl. Mix everything together thoroughly.
  • Squeeze in the fresh lime juice and add salt and pepper to taste. Adjust the seasoning according to your preferences.
  • Once all the ingredients are well combined, cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate the dressing for at least 30 minutes before serving. Chilling allows the flavors to meld and develop.

Facts about the sauce:

  1. Ranch dressing, in its original form, was created by Steve Henson in the early 1950s while working as a plumbing contractor. He and his wife, Gayle, opened a dude ranch in California, where they served the dressing to guests. It grew in popularity, leading them to create the Hidden Valley Ranch brand.
  2. The popularity of ranch dressing has skyrocketed over the years, becoming one of the most widely consumed dressings in the United States and beyond.
  3. Jalapeños, the main ingredient in this variation, are a type of chili pepper that originated in Mexico. They are named after the city of Xalapa in Veracruz, Mexico. The heat level of jalapeños can vary, with some being mild and others quite hot.
  4. Emulsified sauces, like ranch dressing, are sauces that combine oil and water-based ingredients. The emulsification process helps to create a smooth and stable mixture, preventing separation of the liquids.
