Ranch sauce, with its creamy texture and blend of herbs and spices, is an American classic that has gained immense popularity since its creation. It was invented in the 1950s by Steve Henson, a plumber turned cowboy, while he was working as a contractor in Alaska. After moving to California and opening a dude ranch called Hidden Valley Ranch, Henson began serving this unique dressing to his guests. Its popularity grew, and by the 1970s, ranch dressing had become a commercial success. Today, it’s not just a salad dressing; it’s used as a dip for vegetables, a topping for pizzas, a condiment for burgers and sandwiches, and a flavor enhancer for a wide variety of dishes, including pizza with a garlic ranch sauce twist.

  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, sour cream, and buttermilk until smooth. This combination forms the creamy base of the ranch sauce.
  • Stir in the finely chopped chives, parsley, and dill, along with the garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and ground black pepper. These herbs and spices give ranch sauce its distinctive flavor.
  • If desired, add lemon juice to introduce a slight tanginess to the sauce, balancing the creaminess.
  • Ensure all the ingredients are thoroughly combined and the sauce is smooth. Taste and adjust seasoning if necessary.
  • Cover the bowl and refrigerate the sauce for at least 30 minutes before serving. This resting period allows the flavors to meld together.

Useful Properties of the Main Ingredient

Mayonnaise, a primary ingredient in ranch sauce, is rich in healthy fats that can be beneficial when consumed in moderation. It also serves as a source of vitamin E and helps in the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins from other foods.
