I have searched high and low for a keto, ingredient friendly, ranch dressing and have yet to find one.
So, I decided to try and make my own.

With a little tweaking, I have found a very quick and easy ranch dressing that we love. I’m pretty confident you’ll love it, too.
- ½ cup mayonnaise
- 1/3 cup full-fat sour cream (look for one, like Daisy, that only has cultured cream as the ingredient)
- ¼ cup Heavy Whipping Cream
- ½ teaspoon Coconut Aminos (or more if you like)
- ¼ cup dill pickle juice (more or less to reach desired consistency and taste)
- 1 tablespoon dried dill
- 1 tablespoon dried parsley
- ½ teaspoon garlic powder
- ¼ teaspoon onion powder
- 1/8 teaspoon paprika
In a medium-sized mixing bowl, whisk together all of the wet ingredients. Crush the dry herbs between your fingers to release the flavor. Then, add in the dry herbs and spices to the wet ingredients. Give the mixture

You can add the pickle juice a tablespoon at a time until you reach your desired consistency.
Dry chives would be a great addition, maybe half a tablespoon. Taste the mixture before adding the onion powder or take the onion powder down to 1/8 teaspoon.
Read your labels. Be sure to use mayonnaise that does not have added sugar or soybean oil if you are strict keto. If you are dirty keto, Dukes is a great option.

Again, read your labels. The pickles, formerly known as my favorites, had high fructose corn syrup as an ingredient!! So, I’ve had to find an alternative, which I like even better!
Store in a pint-size Mason jar. Use within a weeks time…if it lasts that long.
Macros for the whole recipe.
