Outback Garlic Ranch

Found a recipe on Recipezaar that didn’t seem quite right… so I tweaked it and BAM! Came up with an EXCELLENT version. Mike can’t get enough… and the Carlens and Keslers loved this too!

Outback Spicy Ranch

Adapted from: Recipe Zaar


1 TBS Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing POWDER
(you can find packets in the salad dressing aisle)
1 Cup of Mayonnaise: the Real Stuff
1/2 cup Buttermilk
Plus some regular milk to make right consistancy
3-4 cloves fresh garlic (grated)
Dash of Garlic Powder
Cayenne to taste (I used about an 1/8 of a tsp)
Fresh cracked black pepper (to taste)


Mix all the ingredients together. I added some skim milk (maybe 1/3 cup or so) to mine because it was REALLY thick with just the buttermilk. You can leave it out if you like yours thick. Allow dressing to set for at least an hour (preferably overnight to allow the flavors to get aquainted with eachother). ENJOY!!! SOOO SOOO YUMMY!

    I made this today and it was wonderful. Also inexpensive for the amount you can make and in comparison to other recipes.

    All these dressing receives look so good. I was wondering what the approximate shelf life is on the dressings?

      it depends on the spoilable products you use… I usually go by the milk expiration date or 1 week.

    I use the same one except i use mayo,sour cream, and reg milk for the base. I still use ranch packet and tge seasonings but you should also try creole seasoning salt! If you like the cheesy fries, you use creole seasoning and S&P! You’ll be shocked at the difference!
