    Thank you for this recipe, I just added the dill, it was so very good, Thank you, for all your time into making these recipes, and kindly sharing them with us..

    • You’re so very welcome! Dill is a lovely addition to this dressing. I so appreciate you stopping by to comment!

    Absolutely delicious!
    Was hesitant at first, but once finished this is by far the best ranch dressing I’ve had! Xx

    • Hi! Anything with fresh dairy in it will keep for up to a week in your fridge. If your dairy is super-fresh, you may squeeze another day out it but I wouldn’t go much past that! Enjoy!

    • Hi there! Keto Ranch Dressing will be fine in your fridge for about 5 days – you can squeeze an extra day or two out of that if your dairy is super duper fresh. Hope that helps! ~Jenn

    I love this recipe. So delicious. I substitute Greek yogurt for the sour cream just because that’s what I usually have on hand. Fabulous.

  5. 3 stars
    Doubled this for a pint mason jar!
    Needed more flavor and less water….I added1/4 tsp granulated garlic, more salt to taste and started with 1/4 water and added to consistency i liked!
