Redneck Ranch

Ok..I love ranch dressing.   Whether it’s on the obvious salad, a french fry dip, tacos, on pizza…a spoon.  You name the food and ranch dressing is likely a great add-on!

However, one day we apparently ate our fridge worth of bottled ranch and I had to come up with something quick to satisfy our need of fried chicken tender dip, and that I did.  

The below ingredients can be altered (of course) to your specifications, but they do make a great ranch substitute (Hidden Valley) with a bit of a fun tang.  That same tang is excellent with fried chicken, on burgers & fries…and yes, even vegetables..

*I took pictures of both the whisking/bowl “technique” or the mason jar “technique”.  I do hope that the word, technique, is more comical than anything.  You either stir or shake people.

The Starting Lineup

  • 1/2 cup mayonaisse
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup creole mustard (spicy brown would work too)
  • 3 Tbsp of pimiento peppers
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • Pinch of cayenne pepper
  • Hefty pinch of ground pepper and salt

Optional

  • Mason Jar (to shake..looks great and keeps the dressing fresh)  

Like I mentioned above, this is silly easy.  You combine all of the ingredients into either a bowl or into a mason jar (with lid) and whisk or shake till combine. 

  

  I prefer to then place the dressing into the refridgerator for at least 30-60 minutes to blend the flavors, but if your’e in a hurry, go ahead and dig in!  Enjoy!
