The BEST Ranch Dipping Sauce Recipe!
Everyone has that one friend that puts ranch on everything. My husband is that person in my life. He’ll put ranch on everything from chicken wings, fries, tater tots, tacos, and more. So when I said I was going to make my own Parmesan version of ranch dipping sauce, his ears immediately perked up.
Not only was this ranch sauce super easy to make, I think it tastes WAY better than anything you get in a bottle, jar or comes in a powdered mix. This Parmesan Ranch Dipping Sauce recipe has the perfect balance of savory, that is wonderfully complimentary to pretty much everything you put it on!

As you’ll see in the recipe below, if you’re looking to lighten up this ranch dip, feel free to substitute light sour cream and light mayo (I particularly like olive oil mayo) for the full-fat versions. You can also use plain Greek yogurt, which is a great substitute for sour cream in just about any recipe.
What spices do I need to make ranch?
To make ranch, you will need dried parsley flakes, garlic salt, onion powder and pepper to give this ranch dipping sauce the perfect seasoning and flavor.
Not overpowering, but just the right amount to be complimentary to whatever your dipping or spreading this on.
Whisk together the Sauce
Once you have all of your ingredients in the bowl, simply whisk together until everything is well incorporated. The sauce will have a thick, creamy consistency that can hold up to everything you’re enjoying it with.
Much like my Smokey Chipotle Dipping Sauce, it makes for a fantastic spread on a sandwich, and is the perfect cool, creamy companion to the spiciest of chicken wings!
