organicgirl white cheddar ranch dressing

looking for our lick-the-bowl-worthy white cheddar ranch dressing? from now on, look no further that your refrigerator shelf. hold on to your saddle, pardner, we’re taking country ranch for an uptown stroll! that’s what happens when you corral a good sharp cheddar, aged parmesan, rich sour cream, and tangy buttermilk – a low-fat nutritional powerhouse! – a tad of agave and lemon for balance, and then add fresh grassy green onion. giddyup!

prep time: 25 minutes



makes approx. 3 cups

1 cup sour cream
½ cup buttermilk
8 oz. sharp or extra sharp white cheddar cheese, grated on large-hole grater, divided
⅓ cup mayonnaise
¼ cup grated aged parmesan cheese
3 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon blue agave
1½ tablespoons distilled white vinegar
1 large clove garlic, grated on microplane, to make ½ teaspoon puree
2 teaspoons kosher salt
¼ teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
2 green onions, finely minced to make 2 tablespoons using the white and part of the green


1. add to blender: sour cream, buttermilk, 1½ cups of the cheddar cheese, mayo, lemon juice, agave, vinegar, garlic, salt and pepper. whirl until smooth.

2. add green onion and remaining ½ cup of grated cheddar cheese. whirl for another few seconds, just to combine. you should still see small flecks of cheese.


try it with our lovely blend of red butter lettuces, and these recipes: grilled cheddar and apple sandwich, roasted broccoli cheddar baby kale spring mix salad make ahead! best if flavors are allowed to meld in the refrigerator for a day before serving.

keeps refrigerated for 2 weeks.

So AMAZING! I’m so happy you posted this recipe since the dressing was sold out at my local store and I was so sad! This is the best dressing ever!!


agree i was sad, found 1 day tried it, was so so good, love this girl brand tons


I love this dressing; simple and very delicious! It was discontinued at my neighborhood store, so I am glad you left the recipe. It is one of those dressings that makes me want to do nothing but eat salad. No more battles to get myself to eat healthy!


I love this dressing, and all of my local stores are no longer stocking your dressings. Can you tell me why? I really appreciate the recipe, but I cannot use three cups in two weeks. Help.


hi Sami!
thanks for inquiring about our fresh dressings. we are no longer making our fresh bottled dressings, but that’s why we are sharing our secret recipes so you can make them at home! our consumers have spoken about their preference for homemade & simple salad dressings and we listened. we know you love our organic, fresh dressings as much as we do. try halving this recipe if it seems too large!


Thank you for posting this! My grocery store stopped carrying it and I’ve been looking everywhere for it. I’m making some this weekend!!!
