I am so glad you have stopped by to check out this amazing ranch dressing.

Why do you need this Copycat Outback Ranch Dressing? The flavor of this Ranch dressing is outstanding.  It can be used to make so many recipes. 



I have made several easy and delicious recipes lately using this Ranch dressing, including a Slow Cooker Chicken Bacon Ranch Pizza, Chicken Bacon Ranch Pasta Salad, and Chicken Bacon Ranch Wraps.

I knew if I could find an Outback Ranch Dressing copycat recipe my family would love it.  This recipe adapted from Top Secret Restaurant Recipes 2 by Todd Wilbur.  I include a link to his book on Amazon.  Amazon or Todd Wilbur cookbooks are not affiliated with my blog.  This cookbook is a favorite of mine, so I wanted to mention it to you.  It is full of some of your favorite restaurant recipes.  I was not entirely convinced that this Ranch tasted exactly like Outback’s version of Ranch dressing.  

The recipe called for one teaspoon of Hidden Valley Ranch salad dressing mix (Buttermilk Recipe).  I used the one teaspoon and tasted it.  Having lived in the New Orleans area I just simply like my food with a lot of flavors.  I decided to add the entire one-ounce package of ranch.  I believe it is about two and a half teaspoons in each package.  To me, this extra seasoning was perfect.  It tasted a lot like Outback’s version of Ranch dressing.  It is up to you how much Ranch seasoning you use, but I would try the one teaspoon, and then you too may want to add the rest of the package.

I used this CopyCat Ranch Dressing to make several other dressings including an amazing  Cayenne Ranch Dressing.  Cayenne Ranch was incredibly delicious in this Cayenne Ranch Chicken Pasta Salad

  1. this looks yummy. . . I have to say, your blog/website is very busy. . . I found it hard to navigate. . . way too much advertising. I do enjoy your recipes tho.

    • Kelly, Thank you so much for stopping by Recipes for our Daily Bread and leaving me a comment. We love this Copycat Outback Ranch Dressing and make it very often. I have never made enough to last more than a week. It is gone every time I make it. I am not sure how long it would last in the refrigerator. I would guess a couple of weeks.

      Thank you again for all your support!
