Chive Bacon Ranch Dressing
Prep time
Total time
Recipe type: Condiment Salad Dressing
  • 4 slices bacon, fried crisp
  • ¾ cup buttermilk
  • ½ cup sour cream or yogurt
  • ½ mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 1 small garlic clove
  • ¼ cup finely snipped chives
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  1. Chop the bacon very finely – it isn't going to stay crunchy in the dressing anyway, so the smaller the better, to distribute the flavor evenly.
  2. Mix the buttermilk, sour cream or yogurt, mayo and the vinegar in a medium bowl, until combined and very smooth.
  3. Use a microplane, or mince the garlic and add to the buttermilk mixture.
  4. Add the chives and bacon and mix again, until smooth.
  5. Taste, and add salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Refrigerate for a few hours to blend flavors, and serve over your favorite tossed salad combo or as a dip for fresh vegetables.
  7. Makes about 2 cups. Refrigerate leftovers.
