Recipe of the Week: Yogurt Ranch Dressing

Okie Ranch Wife’s Yogurt Ranch Dressing

This yogurt ranch dressing is a pantry-friendly recipe. I have made it several times already and it is always gone quickly. What I like about making this recipe is that you choose what you put into it. I stay away from commercial products like mayonnaise that has soy or canola oil in the ingredients. You can make your own mayonnaise using just olive oil. You can also make your own yogurt and apple cider vinegar.

This recipe easily doubles or triples.



½ cup Plain Yogurt (not Greek style)

2 Tbsp Mayonnaise

1 Tsp Apple Cider Vinegar

½ Tsp Garlic Powder

½ Tsp Sea Salt

½ Tsp White or Black Pepper

1 Tbsp dried Parsley

1 Tbsp Chives

1 Tsp dried Dill Weed



Thoroughly mix all ingredient together. Place in wide mouth jar.


Because this includes yogurt, be sure to keep it refrigerated and use it all within one week. If not, then feed it to the chickens, compost it, or discard it.

I hope that you enjoy this!  – OkieRanchWife

    shunning rapeseed aka ‘canola’, soy

    Seconded! Although a tiny amount of Omega 6 oils is necessary for the health of the human physical body, this is easily achieved with a few seeds in the form of nuts. Soaked overnight in a weak acid, then sprouted or fermented is best.

    Rapeseed and soy are 99.999% genetically modified, fiddled with so the plants tolerate the millions of tons of petroleum-based chemicals we dump on crops, poisons such as Roundup™®© and other pesticides. Those chemicals concentrate in the oils of the seeds, accumulating in our fat if we dare consume them, then perpetually leaching out to deteriorate our health, manifesting in the form of ‘allergies’ or ‘cancers’ or other common modern illnesses.

    My physical body deserves real food. What good is prepping to prevail if we cut-short our physical lives by eating poisons?

    We like our mayonnaise we make with MCT oil with coconut vinegar and pastured eggs, but as your article mentions, this is for special occasions.
