A perfectly tangy and herbaceous homemade ranch dressing, all thanks to one secret ingredient: Greek yogurt!

My go-to 5-Minute Greek Yogurt Ranch is made with garlic, chives, and fresh dill to create an extra-creamy sauce with signature ranch flavor.

Serve as-is for a thick and creamy dip or thin it out for a drizzly dressing to enjoy with wings, salads, veggies, and more!


  • ½ cup plain Greek yogurt (whole milk or 2% is best)
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped or grated
  • 34 tablespoons finely chopped fresh chives or green onions
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh dill
  • 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons – ⅓ cup water
  • kosher salt & ground black pepper, to season


  1. Mix the Greek yogurt ranch: To a small bowl, add the Greek yogurt, garlic, chives or green onions, dill, & apple cider vinegar. Season with ½ teaspoon kosher salt & ground black pepper as desired. Whisk to combine well. Thin the mixture out with water, just until your desired consistency is reached – for a thick yogurt ranch dip, start with 2 tablespoons water and for a creamy yogurt ranch dressing, ¼ cup water is perfect. Taste and adjust seasoning as desired. [gallery columns="2" link="none" size="full" ids="50524,50526"]
  2. Serve: Enjoy immediately. As a yogurt ranch dip, it’s a great pairing for a veggie platter or a pile of crispy chicken wings. As a yogurt ranch dressing, it’s perfect for tossing into salad or slaw. I also love spreading it on a grilled chicken sandwich. Sky’s the limit, you really can’t go wrong – get creative and have fun with it. Enjoy!A side shot of greek yogurt ranch in a glass jar.
