BBQ Ranch Dressing

  • ¼ cup plain Greek yogurt
  • ¼ cup buttermilk or milk + 1 teaspoon lemon juice or white vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons BBQ sauce I use Sweet Baby Ray's original
  • 1 ½-2 teaspoons ranch dressing mix


  • chicken
  • lettuce
  • black beans
  • corn kernels
  • shredded cheddar cheese
  • sunflower seeds


  • Pour ¼ c plain Greek yogurt, ¼ c buttermilk (or ¼ c milk + 1 teaspoon lemon juice OR white vinegar), 3 T mayo, 2 T BBQ sauce, and 1 ½-2 teaspoon ranch dressing mix into a wide mouth mason jar.
  • Screw jar lid on tight, and shake until dressing is mixed well and smooth. Whisk if you can see small chunks after shaking.
  • Pour over salad with ingredients in ingredient list or use to dip chicken or fries into. You can also use this as a marinade for grilled chicken. It's really versatile!



  • I substitute some of the mayonnaise in the traditional recipe with plain Greek yogurt for a tangy addition. You can replace the ¼ cup greek yogurt with more mayo if you'd like.
  • This BBQ ranch dressing is great as a salad dressing, marinade, or dip for fries or other foods.
