Homemade Ranch Dressing with Greek Yogurt
Using Greek yogurt instead of mayonnaise to make Ranch is a great way to reduce the fat content and calorie count of everyone’s favorite dressing.
You can use this homemade ranch version on everything you’d typically drizzle, dip, or spread the classic without any guilt.
This recipe goes with everything from everyday side salads to dipping carrot fries!
Once you make your own homemade ranch dressing, you’re going to find out why making it from scratch is better than store-bought!
Here are the simple ingredients that you’ll need:
- Plain, non-fat Greek yogurt: unsweetened and unflavored works best.
- Milk or buttermilk: either option works fine you can adjust a bit more or less based on your texture preferences.
- Fresh parsley: finely chop before adding.
- Dried dill: for flavor.
- Garlic powder: for flavor.
- Salt and pepper: for seasoning.

How Many Calories Are in Greek Yogurt Ranch
A serving of homemade yogurt ranch made with Greek yogurt, about 2 tablespoons, will have approximately 60 calories.
How Long Does Homemade Ranch Dressing Last
Whenever you make a homemade dressing, store it in a sealed, airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 7 days.
Leaving it out on the counter for hours might reduce its lifespan so I recommend refrigerating it after you use it.
How to Use Homemade Ranch Dressing As a Dressing:
In a Wrap
Instead of filling your wrap with high-calorie spreads and dressings, use this instead! It’s perfect for Buffalo Chicken Lettuce Wraps because everyone knows that spicy and ranch are the perfect pair!
As a Dip
Ranch dressing dip is totally a thing, and a good one at that. You can dip raw veggies right into the dip or even use it for sweet potato fries or regular baked fries.
Drizzle it on top of a baked potato or dip the pieces of baked potato as well. I’m also a huge fan of using this as a dip for Crispy Baked Salmon Nuggets and this Broccoli & Cheese Nuggets Recipe as well.
