How to make Texas Roadhouse Ranch?

A friend of mine invited me to visit Texas with her. I had no idea what I was getting myself into. She took me to the most popular restaurant in town, Texas Roadhouse.

I was amazed at the variety of food they had to offer. The steak was great, but the sides were even better. My favorite was the ranch dressing. It made the dish just yummy.

When we got home, she surprised me with a copy of the restaurant’s secret recipe book. The Texas Roadhouse Ranch Dressing recipe was inside. Since then, I’ve made it my mission to perfect this dish.

The first time I made it, it was a bit too salty for my taste. So, I cut back on the salt and added more garlic powder to balance it out. The second time, it came out perfect. Now, I make it all the time for my family and friends. They can’t get enough of it!

I will give you the step-by-step process of how to make Texas Roadhouse Ranch at home below. Though for now, here is an overview:

To make the Texas Roadhouse Ranch Recipe, start by whisking together the buttermilk, sour cream, mayonnaise, garlic, onion, and fresh herbs in a bowl. Then, add the dressing to a food processor or blender and blend until smooth. Or simply mix with a whisk. Finally, chill the dressing in the refrigerator for at least an hour before serving.

This ranch dressing is best when served chilled. However, if you are in a hurry, you can serve it at room temperature. This dressing will keep in the fridge for up to a week.

Texas Roadhouse Ranch Dressing Recipe is a healthy, low-fat alternative to traditional ranch dressings. This ranch dressing is also a good source of vitamins A and C and is low in calories.

I love it and always keep some on hand for any occasion. I always recommend this ranch dressing to my friends who are looking for a healthier option than their usual ranch dressings.

This Copycat Texas Roadhouse Ranch is the perfect addition to any salad, veggie tray, or chips and dip! It’s thick, creamy and full of flavor…just like the restaurant version!

You only need a few simple fresh ingredients to make this delicious ranch dressing recipe and it comes together in just minutes. But the best part? It tastes even better than the original!

What do you need to make this dressing?

Buttermilk: You could also use regular milk, but the dressing will be thinner.

Onion powder and Garlic powder: Just a little bit for flavor.

Cayenne pepper: I like a little bit of heat in my ranch.

Parsley: Again, I used fresh parsley, but you could use dried parsley.

Salt and black pepper: To taste

Mayonnaise: I used Hellman’s/Best Foods brand.

Lemon juice: Just a little bit for acidity.

Sour cream: I used Daisy brand. But for the best taste, go for the full-fat kind.

Ingredients 

  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 2 teaspoon black pepper or to taste
  • 2 tsp garlic salt
  • 4 Tsp lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon salt or to taste
  • 1 cup full-fat sour cream
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 3 teaspoons dried dill
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 2 teaspoon onion powder

Equipment

  • Mixing bowl
  • Whisk

Instructions

Step 1

Combine all ingredients in a bowl and whisk until smooth.

Step 2

Pour mixture into a jar or bottle, and refrigerate for at least half an hour to allow the flavors to meld.

Step 3

Add more salt and pepper until the flavor is to your liking.

Step 4

Serve chilled with vegetables, chips, or whatever you like!

Hints

  1. This recipe can use any type of milk, but buttermilk will give the dressing a richer flavor.
  2. If you don’t have any buttermilk on hand, no problem! You can easily substitute by mixing ½ cup milk with 1 teaspoon lemon juice. Let it sit for 5 minutes before using.
  3. This ranch dressing tastes best when it’s been chilled for at least half an hour so the flavors have time to blend together.
  4. Feel free to adjust the seasonings to your liking. If you want a more pronounced garlic flavor, add more garlic powder. If you like things spicy, add a little more cayenne pepper and so on.
  5. The best way to make a fresh and spicy ranch, similar to the one served at Texas Roadhouse, is by avoiding packet mixes. I am not against it, but it will never taste as good as the one made at home.

What does it taste like?

This ranch dressing has a rich and creamy texture with a slightly tangy flavor from the buttermilk and lemon juice. The garlic and onion powders give it a nice savory flavor, while the dill and cayenne pepper add a touch of heat. It’s a delicious and versatile dressing that goes great on just about anything!

I always give importance to taste because it’s the most important thing while cooking. The fact that I enjoy eating what I cook is more important than following a recipe to the letter.

What to serve with Texas Roadhouse Ranch?

This ranch dressing is delicious on just about anything! Try it on salads, as a dip for veggies or chips, or even as a sauce on chicken or fish. It’s also great as a sandwich or burger condiment.

Here are some of my favorite recipes to serve with Texas Roadhouse Ranch:

Grilled Chicken Salad with Ranch Dressing: This salad is packed with flavor and is perfect for summertime grilling. The ranch dressing ties everything together perfectly.

Baked Potato Wedges with Ranch Dip: These potato wedges are crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside. They’re served with a homemade ranch dip that’s out of this world!

Buffalo Chicken Wraps with Ranch Dressing: These wraps are easy to make and flavorful. The ranch dressing helps to cool down the spice from the buffalo chicken.

Ranch Chicken Kabobs: These kabobs are full of juicy chicken, crisp veggies, and a delicious ranch marinade. They’re perfect for a quick and easy weeknight meal!

How to store leftover Texas Roadhouse Ranch?

You can store leftover ranch dressing in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week. I like to store mine in a mason jar, so it’s easy to grab and go when needed.

If your ranch dressing gets a little thick, you can thin it out by stirring in a little milk or buttermilk until it reaches the desired consistency.
