Homemade organic ranch dressing in a bowl.
Elevate Any Ranch Dressing With Just One Herby Ingredient
By Sarah Richter
Step out of your comfort zone with ranch dressing by adding some pesto, and you might find that the combination of flavors is worth so much more than the sum of its parts.
Basil pesto is a delightful way to zhuzh up ranch dressing, as it’s bright, fresh, and unapologetically punchy, making it an ideal addition.
Another handy trick is to switch the basil out for dill, which provides a grassy and verdant flavor that is arguably a better-suited addition to many iterations of ranch. 
The possibilities are practically endless. If you have a jar of store-bought pesto, and dinner is in 20 minutes, swirl some straight into the ranch dressing and call it a day.
