Salsa ranch, also know as fiesta ranch or southwest ranch, is one of my favorite easy dressings to make at home.
It combines two of my favorite condiments to make a creamy, zesty, flavor-packed dressing that is delicious on all the things.
Ingredients for Salsa Ranch Dressing
This dressing is SO easy to whip up. Here’s what you are going to need:
Whisk Up the Salsa Ranch Dressing
This dressing is the easiest to make. Simply whisk together all the ingredients. As the dressing sits it will thicken a bit. So if you’re using it right away, let it sit for 10 minutes.
It tastes even better after it’s been refrigerated for a few hours so if you have the time, make it ahead of time.
Frequently Asked Questions
What are your favorite ways to use this dressing? I love this dressing over a southwest salad. Think corn, black beans, avocado, tortilla strips, grilled chicken or steak. It’s also great on taco salad or as a dip for veggies or chicken strips.
How long is the dressing good in the refrigerator? When stored in an airtight container, this dressing is good for up to 2 weeks or until the buttermilk expires (whichever comes first).
How can I lighten up this recipe? If you want a lower calorie dressing, you can use low-fat mayo or switch it out for nonfat greek yogurt. That will affect the flavor some but it will still be tasty.
