Homemade Ranch Dressing

Our Hidden Valley® Ranch was first bottled in 1954, when the HVR founder Steve Henson bought a Ranch (go figure) outside of Santa Barbara, California. There, he perfected his signature tangy dressing recipe which became an instant hit. Here’s how we put the seasoning back into a drizzle — and dunk-worthy version of his OG showstopper.
