Outback Steakhouse is one of America's most popular restaurant chains, producing a number of crowd-pleasing dishes under an Australian barbecue theme. An integral part of Outback cuisine are the sauces used, including the restaurant's oft-ordered ranch dressing, used on salads and as a dipping sauce. You can recreate a dressing very similar to the one used in Outback to bring restaurant-style dining home.
Things You'll Need
- 1 tsp. ranch buttermilk dressing mix
- 1 cup of mayonnaise
- 3/4 cup buttermilk
- 1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
- 1/4 tsp. paprika
- 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
- 1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
- Salad shaker or mixing bowl
Mix all the ingredients in a salad shaker or medium-sized mixing bowl, making sure any lumps have been smoothed out.
Place the dressing mixture in the refrigerator for a minimum of 30 minutes to chill properly before use.
Remove the chilled dressing from the refrigerator and serve immediately over salad or as an appetizer dipping sauce.
Tips & Warnings
- Try increasing the spice content of your dressing by adding more cayenne pepper to the mix and less paprika.
