Jalapeno Ranch

  • Total Time: 10 minutes
  • Yield: ~ 1 cup


  • 1 egg
  • ¾ cup light olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons dried dill
  • 2 teaspoons dried parsley
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 jalapeno, roughly chopped (seed in or out, your call!)
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • ¼ cup buttermilk


  1. Add egg and oil to a tall container - I use the one that came with my stick blender, but a measuring cup works too. Cover the egg yolk with the stick blender and turn it on. After 30 seconds, begin slowly moving the blender up until everything is emulsified and combined.
  2. Add spices, jalapeno and lime juice and blend for another 15-20 seconds. Add buttermilk and blend one more time.
  3. Taste and adjust seasoning as needed. If it does feel super spicy, know that it will mellow out a bit as it sits.
  4. If you want to thin it out more, add a couple more tablespoons of buttermilk until you get the consistency you want.


If you don't want to make your own mayo, feel free to use 3/4 cup of store-bought.
