Sriracha Ranch Dressing

Sriracha Ranch Dressing is all the things people love about ranch dressing—creamy, fresh, herby—but with the added kick of spice from sriracha sauce that takes it over the top. It’s delicious on everything from salads to tacos, wings, and fries.

I know it seems like everyone loves ranch dressing, but I have never been a fan. Until, that is, I discovered sriracha ranch dressing. This stuff is so good, people! Adding that kick of chili to the creamy, slightly sweet dressing makes all the difference.

I discovered Trader Joe’s Sriracha Ranch by accident one day when my son wanted thousand island dressing for homemade cheeseburgers. Turns out TJ’s doesn’t have a thousand island dressing. But the sriracha ranch cried out to me. I mean, it’s a similar color and has the same creamy base texture. And guess what. It’s amazing on a cheeseburger.

What can’t Sriracha Ranch Dressing do?

But that’s not all this dressing is good for. I use it in bang bang sauce for my Air Fryer Bang Bang Shrimp, as a dip for sweet potato fries, wings, or potato chips, and as a salad dressing. I love it on a green salad with avocado, tomatoes, and grilled chicken. Add bacon and blue cheese and it becomes the most crave-worthy spicy Cobb salad.

When I made a batch of bang bang shrimp recently, I ended up with a bunch of extra buttermilk. Looking for ways to use it up, I thought, why not try making my own version of sriracha ranch? It’s easy, uses just a handful of ingredients, and the homemade sriracha ranch dressing tastes super fresh.

What ingredients are in Sriracha Ranch Dressing?

Homemade sriracha ranch dressing uses just a handful of ingredients:

If you want it to be lower in fat, you can use light sour cream or replace the sour cream with more yogurt (use Greek yogurt for a thicker consistency).

Store-bought sriracha ranch dressing usually contains a fairly big dose of sugar, but I don’t add any sugar to mine because I don’t think it needs it. Sriracha sauce contains sugar, so this recipe isn’t sugar free, but it does contain considerably less sugar than the bottled stuff.
