Ranch Q&A
How long will homemade ranch last?
Homemade ranch dip will last in the fridge in an airtight container for 2 weeks.
What is the difference between ranch dip and ranch dressing?
The difference is the consistency.  Dip is thicker so veggies can be dunked into it, while dressing is thinner so it can be poured over salad.  This recipe can act as both.  You can add more or less milk to make the dressing the consistency that you desire.
What should I serve homemade ranch with?
Ranch is delicious with so many things!
