    This is good, I listened to the others and added the buttermilk at the end to make it thicker or thinner.

    This was not creamy at all .... very, very thin. I used regular mayonnaise and sour cream rather than the reduced fat, but that should not have made the dressing so thin. The taste was good, but it was just too thin for us. I will not make this again.

    Very good and easy. Added the buttermilk last adding small amounts at a time till desired consistency approx. 1/3 as I like a thicker consistency.

    Very good! Ranch is my favorite dressing. This is a thicker dressing, like the more expensive dressing on the market but I like that since it works well as a dip too!!

    I made this for dinner to go on our green salad I have a 16 year old who likes his ranch and he said this was the best he ever had.. Used dried parsley and garlic granuals instead of fresh all I had on hand, turned out great..
