Is Ranch Salad Dressing Keto-friendly?
No, most store-bought ranch dressing recipes contain non-keto ingredients, including sugar, vegetable oil, and buttermilk.
An average store-bought ranch dressing contains 3.5 grams of net carbs per serving of 2 tablespoons.
These are unnecessary carbs from processed ingredients, including sugar, that won’t go in favor of your keto lifestyle.
Can You Eat Ranch Salad Dressing On A Keto Diet?
Yes, but not all brands! Some contain added sugar and added canola oils that are not keto-friendly.
Look for a dressing that only has clean ingredients and no added sugar, or make your own keto ranch salad dressing recipe at home.
How To Make Keto Ranch Salad Dressing
Great news, it takes only 10 minutes to make homemade keto ranch dressing at home.
So let’s see how you can make this easy keto salad dressing.
- Mayonnaise – not all mayonnaise brands are keto-friendly. Choose mayonnaise without canola oils or without any vegetable oils. These are non-keto-friendly fats. Instead, use mayonnaise made with avocado oil or olive oil. These are the best mayonnaise choice on your keto journey. Primal Kitchen has a great range of keto-friendly mayonnaise.
- Plain Greek Yogurt or sour cream dairy-free plain yogurt like coconut yogurt for a dairy-free option. Learn how to pick keto-friendly yogurt.
- Lemon juice
- Dried chives
- Dried dill
- Onion powder
- Garlic powder
- Unsweetened almond milk for a dairy-free option or heavy cream for a thicker, creamier dressing. Did you know that regular milk isn’t keto-friendly?
- Black pepper
Stir And Shake It
It’s very easy to make this ranch salad dressing. Simply bring all the ingredients into a glass mason jar.
Then, give it a quick stir with a fork.
Finally, close the lid and shake it like crazy!
I mean vigorously or until all the ingredients come together.
If the sauce is too thick for your liking, add up to 1/4 cup of extra heavy cream or almond milk.
This keto ranch dressing stores for up to 1 week in the fridge or slightly more depending on your sour cream or Greek yogurt’s best-before date.
Always store the salad dressings in the fridge in a sealed glass mason jar and shake it before serving.
