Texas Roadhouse Ranch Dressing Recipe
In addition to their well-known rolls and honey butter, We have a personal favorite at Texas Roadhouse: their ranch dressing. It's incredibly delicious, yet it is very easy to make at home.
Here are some tips for making a copycat Texas Roadhouse ranch dressing recipe:
- Use full-fat mayonnaise and sour cream for a richer and creamier texture.
- Use a good quality buttermilk for the tangy flavor. You can also substitute it with regular milk and lemon juice.
- Adjust the seasoning according to your taste preferences. Texas Roadhouse ranch dressing is known for being slightly spicy, so you can add more cayenne pepper or hot sauce if you prefer.
- For the best results, let the dressing chill in the refrigerator for at least an hour before serving. This will allow the flavors to meld together and the dressing to thicken.
- To make a healthier version, you can use Greek yogurt instead of sour cream and mayonnaise and reduce the amount of salt.
- Mayonnaise: Use a full-fat mayonnaise for a creamy texture. Low-fat or fat-free mayonnaise can alter the taste and consistency.
- Sour cream: Full-fat sour cream is recommended for the best flavor and texture. You can also use Greek yogurt as a healthier alternative.

- Spices: The recipe calls for garlic powder, black pepper, salt, and cayenne pepper. Adjust the amounts to your taste preferences.
