Copycat Outback Buttermilk Ranch Dressing

We recently ate dinner at Outback Steakhouse. It has been YEARS since we have eaten at Outback. I forgot how good it is. We each got a salad and split a couple of appetizers. SO good! The salad was great; especially the ranch dressing. OMG! I could drink that stuff. Chicken Legs asked me to try and copy the recipe so we could have it at home. I took a stab at it, and I think it is really close. We both loved it, so that is all that matters. It is a million times better than the bottled stuff! This is definitely our new go-to Ranch dressing recipe!

How to Make Outback Ranch Dressing at Home

This Copycat Outback Ranch Dressing is super easy to make. Simply whisk together some mayonnaise, buttermilk, ranch dressing mix, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, cayenne, and black pepper. Let the dressing sit in the refrigerator for a couple of hours and enjoy!

I used Hidden Valley Ranch dressing mix and full-fat buttermilk. This is a thicker ranch dressing, so feel free to add a little more buttermilk if you want a thinner dressing.

Even though there is a little cayenne pepper in this Copycat Outback Ranch Dressing, it isn’t spicy. If you want a spicy buttermilk ranch dressing I would double the cayenne pepper.

  1. Outback has my favorite ranch dressing and this certainly hits the spot at home for so much cheaper!! Thanks for an easy recipe that just tastes delicious.

  2. I make this for dipping vegetables every time we have company – they ALWAYS ask for the recipe, it’s that good!! Just made a fresh batch for thanksgiving 😊

  3. Very tasty, excellent dupe! Outback also has a great honey mustard dressing, like on the , like the one they use on the Alice Springs chicken dish. Have you duped it?

  4. This looks amazing! I’m trying to start the process of making my own condiments at home and we go through a lot of ranch LOL What are the measurements of 1 OZ of Ranch, please?

    1. I’ve always used whole milk instead of buttermilk and Kraft real mayo. I’ve used 2% a few times and could not taste a difference.
