Bacon Ranch Salad Dressing Recipe
This delicious bacon ranch salad dressing recipe is simple to prepare, since you just have to stir all the ingredients together. You can make this without bacon if you prefer; just leave the bacon out of it and it will taste like regular ranch dressing. Do not swap the onion powder or garlic powder for fresh onion or fresh garlic. It will not taste so smooth and the substitution would affect the consistency too.
If you are a fan of ranch dressing you will probably love this bacon version. The bacon adds meatiness to the creaminess. Serve this ranch salad dressing recipe with mixed leaves and add some croutons for a simple but totally mouthwatering salad. You can add chopped cooked chicken to the salad if you like, or some minced anchovies.
The first thing to do is start frying the bacon, because you can combine the rest of the ingredients while it is in the pan, getting nice and crispy. There is no such thing as ‘too crispy’ either. Obviously do not burn the bacon but do get it nice and crisp because the flavor is really great then. The other ingredients need to be stirred together until well combined and then you can crumble the bacon in there. In fact if you had breakfast for bacon and have some left over, you can simply use that and save time. Feel free to use reduced-fat mayonnaise and sour cream to lower the fat and calorie count if you like.

Bacon and eggs are a popular breakfast combo, but consider these as ingredients in your next salad dressing recipe. Egg-rich mayonnaise combines with sour cream and buttermilk, then bacon, onion and seasonings go into the mix as well. This ranch dressing is thick, rich and creamy, and the saltiness of the bacon goes beautifully. Serve this over a bacon, egg, iceberg lettuce, green onion, and crouton salad, or else contrast it with crunchy vegetables. Another idea is serving this bacon ranch dressing as a dip for crudités, cheese straws or chips.
