3-INGREDIENT RANCH DIP


Close up of a bowl of homemade ranch dip on a veggie tray. The bowl is surrounded by lots of cut up vegetables, including: carrots, cucumbers, and bell peppers.

If you know me, or have been following along with me for a while, you know I love veggies. I am the person who brings something veggie-centric to a potluck to guarantee that there is a healthy option for me to enjoy along with the rest of the party food. This often means I'm making a large veggie tray with me to parties. From now on I'll also be bringing along this 3-ingredient ranch dip too!


Creamy sour cream paired with tangy Greek yogurt creates the perfect base for this homemade ranch dip. This 3-ingredient dip is extremely easy to prepare, is high in protein, and doesn’t have any strange additives like you often find in store-bought dips. This healthy vegetable dip is something you can feel good about eating and sharing with your loved ones.

INGREDIENTS NEEDED FOR THIS 3-INGREDIENT RANCH DIP


Sour Cream: I have generally used regular sour cream when making this ranch dip recipe, but using a light sour cream would be a great option to cut out additional calories in this healthy ranch dip recipe if you’d prefer!

Plain Greek Yogurt: some may label this a Greek yogurt ranch dip from using this ingredient, and I’m ok with that! Greek yogurt adds a wonderful tang that plays off of the creaminess of the sour cream in this ranch dip. Plain Greek yogurt also packs a lot of nutritional punch by being low in fat, low to no sugar (depending on brand), high in protein, and includes probiotics which are great for gut health! I like to use a 2% fat plain Greek yogurt for my dip.

Ranch Seasoning: needed to get the ranch flavor into your dip.

SERVING SUGGESTIONS FOR 3-INGREDIENT RANCH DIP


What to serve this ranch dip with: This 3-ingredient sour cream dip is the perfect add on to a veggie tray, or for snacking on vegetables at home. My husband also really loves this ranch dip with Spicy Chili Naan Crisps (like, eat up all my ranch dip with these like it).


Party tip: if you’re making this as a part of a series of easy party appetizers for a gathering and are not putting all of your ranch dip on your tray to start, keep the remaining portion of your homemade ranch dip in a sealed container in the fridge to refresh throughout the party! I will often bring large bags of pre-cut vegetables with me as well so I can put more veggies out throughout the event as they get eaten up.
