If you’re like me, you love the incomparable flavor of ranch dip and dressing. And I’m not alone—my kids love it, too. (And it’s a great way to get them to eat vegetables!)

But to me, homemade is always better than something out of a package or bottle. So, I came up with a way for my kids and I to enjoy ranch flavor from our very own kitchen—Homemade Ranch Dip.

Like my Smoked Salmon Dip, Smoked Trout Dip, and Canned Salmon Dip, it’s made in a food processor and super-easy. All you have to do is combine your ingredients, push the button, and it’s done.

Voila!

Besides the fact that it’s so quick and easy, what makes this recipe special is a really great balance of flavors. It has savory notes from onion and garlic powder. It has herbal notes of parsley and dill. It has tang from sour cream and lemon juice. And it has just a touch of sweetness, from honey.

The kids and I like tons of veggies on the side, of course. We can munch on Homemade Ranch Dip and carrots, celery, cucumber—you name it—all day.

But we don’t stop there, and neither should you. This dip is also great with sweet potato fries. And chicken wings. And grilled shrimp!

And perhaps best of all, it comes from your kitchen. Yum.
