The right salad dressing can make all of the difference between a ho-hum salad and one to be savored. Getting the dressing right is essential! So with that in mind, I’m delighted to share today’s recipe with you guys. The recipe makes a quick and easy low carb keto dump ranch salad dressing that can be ready to go from start to finish in only 5 minutes flat.
Real, Whole Food Ingredients
One of the main reasons why I love making my own homemade salad dressing recipes like this one so much is that it gives me the peace of mind of knowing that my dressing isn’t full of unhealthy artificial additives or preservatives. This recipe uses nothing but 100% real, whole food ingredients and it’s all the better for it.
Whenever I make this recipe, I like to use homemade keto mayonnaise, but you can feel free to use any variety of mayo that you like, so long as you make sure that it’s keto friendly. As a matter of fact, if you’re interested in making out your own homemade keto mayo, then I highly recommend trying out one of the following recipes:

OMG-worthy Salad Dressing That’s Ready To Go In Only 5 Minutes
The other big reason why I love this recipe so much is because it’s so quick and easy to make. All you have to do is take all of the ingredients (mayo, sour cream, unsweetened almond milk, lemon juice, parsley, dill, chives, garlic powder, onion powder), combine them in a bowl, and then put the mixture into either an airtight container or a jar. Store the dump ranch dressing in the fridge until you’re ready to use it – it can be kept in the fridge for up to seven days before going bad.

How Do I Make My Salads More Filling?
If you’re one of those people who loves huge salads, one way to increase the volume of your salad is to mix and match your greens. You don’t have to use just kale or lettuce. Feel free to mix it up with some cabbage, arugula, spinach, and more.
Another way to add calories to your salad is to add high-fat ingredients like oils, nuts and lean proteins. Protein is highly satiating, while oils and nuts will slow down digestion. By adding these into your salad, it will feel more like a full meal.
