Check out my recipe for making Ranch Veggie Dip!
I LOVE ranch! One of the great things about ranch veggie dip is that is it so versatile and you can eat it with just about anything! You can dip carrots, cucumbers, potato chips, chicken wings, pizza, or pretzels in it!
You can get that classic flavor of ranch at home by making your own ranch veggie dip! It's super quick to make, it has no artificial flavors or colors, tastes great and your entire family will love it, yes even the kids!!
If you go to any grocery store, you're going to find a ton of different options for all things ranch! You can buy ranch dressing. Hidden Valley Ranch made with Buttermilk is my all-time favorite! You can buy thicker ranch dips that are usually in the produce department. I love the Marzetti ranch veggie dip.
You can choose to use ranch dressing or ranch dip on just about anything. But, I usually use the dressing, which is thinner than the dip, for things like salads, pizza, and wings. When you want a thicker, chunkier, more substantial ranch for dipping things like raw vegetables and chips, I usually opt for ranch dip.
You can easily make your own ranch dip by adding a packet of ranch seasoning to sour cream. But, when you want a really good, thick, chunky, homemade ranch dip, making it from scratch is the best option.
Making ranch veggie dip from scratch could not be any easier! It looks like it uses a lot of ingredients, which it does, but I bet you have many, if not all, ingredients in your pantry right now! The base of my Ranch Veggie Dip is made of sour cream and mayonnaise. Add in a bunch of spices and you are ready to go! It's super quick and easy to make. The flavor is amazing and the texture can't be beaten!
You'll notice that my ranch dip recipe includes some fresh veggies IN THE DIP! Yes! There's no better way to take ranch to the next level!! My recipe includes adding minced pieces of green and red bell peppers! Why, you ask? Well, not only do the bell peppers add a little extra flavor, but they add an incredible texture!
The small pieces of bell pepper help to thicken up the ranch and add a bit of a chunky texture to the dip. You don't need a lot of bell pepper, but it really does make a big difference.
Say goodbye to boring ranch dip and hello to my Ranch Veggie Dip!
Tips for making Ranch Veggie Dip:
Yes, you can use ranch dressing as a dip. However, ranch dressing is much thinner in consistency than ranch dip and is best served with salads, pizza, and chicken wings. If you are looking for a thicker constancy, go with dip. Ranch dip goes really well with vegetables, potato chips, and crusty bread.
Ranch veggie dip should be stored in the refrigerator, in an airtight container. Do not freeze. When stored properly, homemade ranch dip should last for about 7 days.
Ranch veggie dip goes great with all of your favorite veggies like cucumbers, tomatoes, celery, radishes, and carrots. It's also great with chips, wings, and pizza. You can even top baked potatoes with it or use it on sandwiches and wraps instead of mayo or mustard. If you're feeling adventurous, add a tablespoon or so to your mashed potatoes or pasta salad.
You can use either dried or fresh herbs to make ranch veggie dip. If you have the fresh herbs on hand, just chop them up real good and add them instead of the dried herbs. Most people have dried herbs already, which makes this recipe super convenient.
Yes, if you are looking for a bit of a healthier option, you can substitute non-fat Greek yogurt for the mayonnaise and sour cream that is used in this recipe.

Ingredient substitutions and tips for making Ranch Veggie Dip:
The full ingredient list is found at the bottom of the post in the recipe card.
Mayonnaise- If desired, you can use non-fat Greek yogurt instead of the mayonnaise and sour cream that the recipe calls for,
Sour Cream- Full fat or low fat sour cream can be used.
Red and Green Bell Pepper- The peppers add a little flavor but also add to the texture of the dip. If you don't like bell peppers, you can use finely minced carrots and celery instead. They will add a little crunch and create a similar texture.
Chives- Fresh or dried.
Parsley- Fresh or dried.
Dill- Fresh or dried.
Garlic Powder- Do not use garlic salt. Garlic salt is very salty and will completely change the flavor of the dip.
