Healthier HVR Dressing

flickr photoHealthy Option To Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing 

One of my co-workers on the No Fast Food Challenge asked if they could use the dry packet of Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing.  I found this recipe at All for them to substitute.  It’s healthier and fresher.  The only thing that’s missing is the preservatives.


  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried chives
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried dill weed
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper


  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, sour cream, chives, parsley, dill, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes before serving.
  2. Some of the comments below the recipe suggest using a combination of mayo, sour cream and buttermilk.
