  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise $0.13
  • 1/4 cup plain yogurt* $0.11
  • 1 tsp lemon juice $0.04
  • 3/16 tsp garlic powder** $0.02
  • 1/8 tsp onion powder $0.01
  • 1 Tbsp finely chopped fresh parsley, loosely packed $0.05
  • 1 green onion, finely chopped $0.11
  • freshly cracked pepper $0.01
  • 1/8 tsp sugar (optional) $0.01
  • 1 Tbsp milk (optional)*** $0.02


  • Combine all of the ingredients in a bowl and stir to combine.
  • Use the dressing immediately, or for the best flavor refrigerate for 30 minutes to allow the flavors to blend.
  • Store the ranch dressing in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.



*You can use Greek style yogurt if needed, just use more milk to thin out the dressing.
**3/16 is a weird measurement, I know. Just use a 1/8 tsp measuring spoon and fill it 1.5 times.
***Make this recipe without milk for a thicker dip, or add the milk to thin it out to a pourable dressing.
