Peppery Dill Ranch Dressing recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen

Packed full of crushed pepper and loaded with fresh dill, this dressing is a great addition to our usual dressings and dips for our raw vegetables. Just pourable enough for a salad and also thick enough for a dip, I’ve eaten this dressing on four salads already.

My boys both gave it two thumbs up and asked if they could please have a veggie plate, regardless of the fact it was 9am. I’m planning to make a chopped salad for lunch tomorrow, just so I can use this dressing again!

This is a creamy, tangy ranch dip is a bit more traditional and loaded with as many fresh herbs as I could stir into it.

Peppery Dill Ranch Dressing

Pin Print Review


  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup mayonaisse
  • 3.5 ounces or a scant half cup of milk
  • 2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 huge garlic clove minced well
  • 1 slightly heaped tablespoon finely chopped fresh dill
  • 1 scant tablespoon finely chopped fresh Italian leaf parsley
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt adjust to taste
  • ¼ - 1/2 teaspoon medium grind cracked black pepper adjust to taste


  • In a small cup, combine the milk and lemon juice and let rest for 5 minutes. In a medium size bowl, combine the sour cream, mayonnaise, garlic, dill and parsley. Add the milk and whisk to combine. Season with salt and pepper and taste. Adjust seasonings as desired.
  • Pour into a jar and refrigerate at least an hour before serving. I recommend making this the day before it is going to be used, to allow the flavors to really incorporate. Enjoy!

    This would be a major upgrade for any dish using ranch dressing. So much better made fresh plus that red pepper would brighten up other flavors.

    10 thumbs up! I made a version of this that so far has rocked as a topping to a spicy jalapeno burger, as a condiment with grilled salmon, and by itself as a dip. Fantastic recipe.
