  • Summary

    It's not hard to understand why ranch dressing is so popular: It's creamy without being heavy, with a good herbal kick and a subtle garlic presence. There are countless recipes for it, but this version, made with fresh garlic and fresh herbs, tastes so much brighter than those using garlic powder and dried herbs.
