What You Need To Make Dill Pickle Ranch Dressing

How To Make Dill Pickle Ranch Dressing

This recipe really couldn’t be any easier, and outside of some measuring, the only real work is in chopping up some dill pickle.

  1. Measure the mayonnaise, sour cream, dill pickle juice, herbs, and salt and pepper into a jar with a tight fitting lid.
  2. Shake the heck out of the ingredients to combine them thoroughly.
  3. Chop the dill pickle finely, and stir it into the dressing.

That’s it!

What Kind of Pickles To Use In Dill Pickle Ranch Dressing?

Avoid sweet pickles – not only are they not keto, but you want the big and tangy flavors of dill pickles to come through in this recipe. Look for kosher, garlic dill, or your favorite unsweetened dill pickle. Big pickles or small, it doesn’t matter. Just chop them up finely (but not pulverized). I use an alligator chopper to help me chop things like this pretty finely.

Chef Jenn’s Tips

  • Don’t discard your pickle juice! So many recipes can benefit from the salty, tangy, and assertive flavor of pickle juice. To save it without taking up room in my freezer, I freeze the pickle juice in an ice cube tray, then just keep the frozen pickle juice cubes in a baggie in the freezer until I need some.
  • Dried herbs work wonderfully in this recipe. If you want to swap out the dried for fresh, you’ll need to double the amount the recipe calls for, and make sure that you chop the herbs finely so that they can be distrubted throughout.
  • Mayo and sour cream keep this recipe thick and delicious. Use full-fat versions of both to keep your fat macros up.

How Long Can I Store Ranch Dressing in the Fridge?

Dairy-based dressings will keep for about a week if kept tightly closed in the fridge. If your dairy is super fresh, you can probably squeeze another day or two out of it, but I wouldn’t push past that.

How To Use Keto Dill Pickle Ranch Dressing

This low-carb ranch dressing goes perfectly on your favorite salads, of course, but I also love using it for:

  • as a sauce over grilled chicken and shrimp
  • and more!
