Peppercorn Ranch Dressing

My husband was really happy whenever I made this dressing.  It is the first time I have made it but when we go out to restaurants, he orders it often.  He loved this recipe. It was so funny.  I stopped and bought some peppercorns and then stopped by my husband’s office to ask him what to use to grind them. We usually use a coffee grinder, which we use just for herbs and it does work well.  I said I wish I had a mortar and pestle.  He said, “I have one in my truck!”  I couldn’t believe it.  He said he just bought it at a yard sale, new in the box.  It was an awesome day.  It’s funny how you try to bless someone with something good and they bless you right back.  It makes my heart smile.  This dressing made my husband smile!  Hopefully, it will make your family smile too!


2 cups Hellmann’s mayo

1 cup sour cream

1 cup Parmesan cheese

2 Tbsp. ground peppercorns

2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce

1 tsp. vinegar

1/2 tsp. salt

1 tsp. hot sauce

2 tsp. minced garlic

1 cup buttermilk


Combine all the ingredients together.  Chill and serve.  This makes a large amount of dressing.  You can easily half the recipe.  I served it over lettuce wedges topped with cheese.  It was delicious!
