How to make homemade low-carb ranch dressing

It's super easy to make low-carb salad dressings. No need for a food processor either. Just stir it up, right in a bowl or a shake it up in a large glass jar!

1. In a medium bowl, mix together the mayonnaise and sour cream.

2. Add the lemon juice, herbs, and seasonings. Mix together until well combined.

3. Slowly add milk and mix until combined.

If the ranch dressing is too thick, add a little more milk. Also, give the dressing a taste and season with salt and black pepper, if you wish.

4. Transfer to a mason jar or an airtight container. Store in the refrigerator.

Homemade ranch dressing lasts up to two weeks in the fridge.
