Why Restaurant Ranch Dressing?

The consistency of restaurant-style ranch dressing is often thicker and smoother than store-bought versions. Many restaurants make their ranch dressing from scratch using fresh ingredients. Good restaurant-style ranch dressing balances tangy, creamy, and herby flavors.
