Ranch dressing always has a touch of sugar to balance the flavors. In this case we used unrefined pure maple syrup . For a more overt maple flavor, choose a darker grade; for a less pronounced maple flavor and a more classic ranch taste, choose light amber maple syrup.


Units Scale


  • 1/2 cup plain low-fat Greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons chopped chives
  • 4 teaspoons dark maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon dried buttermilk powder, such as SACO or nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried dill weed
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper


Combine yogurt, mayonnaise, vinegar, chives, maple syrup, buttermilk or yeast, salt, dill and pepper in a bowl and whisk to combine. Alternatively, puree in a blender.
