Homemade Ranch Dressing

Y'all, I've tried a million different recipes for homemade ranch dressing. Sometimes the taste is there, but it's too thin, or the thickness is there, but the taste is sub-par. But today, I think I mastered the perfect ranch dressing/dip. This one has a little kick, but if you don't like that, you can leave out the sriracha. This is super easy to whip up and a little goes a long way. Mix it up with different herbs (use dill, parsley, chives, tarragon), use a homemade mayonnaise like I did. Stop buying the stuff in the store that is filled with carrageenan, gums, and all sorts of other fillers. This dressing/dip is the best because you know every single ingredient in it. Yum.

Homemade Ranch Dressing
1/2 cup mayonnaise (homemade is best)
1/2 cup sour cream (the real deal here - no light, no fat-free)
1/2 tbs Dijon mustard
1/4 cup fresh chopped herbs
1/2 tsp sriracha (or more if you like it)
1/4 tsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
salt and pepper

Combine all ingredients in a jar. Mix thoroughly. Season to taste. Refrigerate immediately.
