There’s very little doubt about it – ranch dressing is super tasty! When looking for that right dip or salad dressing, you can’t go wrong with ranch dressing.
The good news is that there is a wide range of ranch dressing brands to try out there. The even better news is that you need to try as many of them as possible to see which one you like!
When you’re choosing store-bought ranch dressing, some brands are better than others. And, the price can vary, too, with many being pretty expensive.
Some ranch dressings are also more zesty and tangy, whilst others are smoother with more body to their taste and texture.
But, with so many flavors and brands to choose from, many people find it challenging to find the right dressing for their dishes.
That is why we have made this in-depth list of the very best ranch dressings you can buy from the store today.
Whether you need it for salad, sandwiches, snacks, or any kind of appetizer, we have an abundance of delicious ranch dressings waiting for you below.
We have considered a variety of factors, too, such as their flavor profiles, prices, and different options for those with health restrictions and specific dietary needs.
So, sit tight and get ready to feel hungry!
12. Trader Joe’s Organic Ranch Dressing
Trader Joe’s (see also ‘23 Of The Best Trader Joe’s Recipes Ever‘) grocery store is jam-packed with its personalized brand of products, which are loved by millions nationwide.
If you have ever shopped there, you’ve probably got a few of their products in your kitchen right now.
Chances are, you have bought something organic from the store, as Trader Joe’s is renowned for offering supreme organic options for its customers. One such food item is its ranch dressing.
Although organic, this ranch dressing is not the healthiest, with around 2 tablespoons of sugar per serving. So, if you opt for this dressing, we suggest that you go lightly on your servings.
Although it isn’t the healthiest option on our list, Trader Joe’s ranch dressing is pretty darn tasty. And, we all deserve a little treat once in a while, right?
11. Daiya Homestyle Ranch Dressing
In this list, we tried to find a selection of ranch dressings that are suitable for those with certain food intolerances or allergies. That is why we have included Daiya Homestyle Ranch Dressing.
If you suffer from a dairy intolerance or allergy, the majority of ranch dressings on the market will not be good for you.
However, some brands such as Daiya Homestyle offer options for those looking for dairy-free dressings.
Whilst this is dairy-free, it is certainly not at the top of our list.
Some reviewers found that it tasted too “cheesy” (although there is no cheese in its ingredients), so, such a flavor profile is a little strange.
Because of this, we believe that too many additional flavors have been added to this ranch dressing to try and achieve the taste of the traditional stuff.
But, if you’re looking for a dressing that has a bleu cheese, sweet flavor, then Daiya Homestyle’s offering would be right up your alley.
Otherwise, you may want to find another on our list below.
10. Wish-Bone Ranch Dressing
Another ranch dressing that can be “hit or miss” is Wish-Bone’s product.
If you’re on a budget and looking for a cheap dressing at the store, this is one of the most affordable on the market. But, we’re including it low on our list because its flavor isn’t as strong as many others we tried.
Although the taste and consistency of Wish-Bone ranch dressing are a little disappointing, it does the job.
If you love Hidden Valley ranch dressing, then this is the closest thing to it. Its creaminess, tanginess, and thickness are either loved or loathed. For us, we actually enjoyed this dressing.
Upon reading other reviews, Wish-Bone ranch dressing doesn’t seem all that popular.
However, we have some of the most delicious ranch dressings coming up below, so stick around to find the ones you really want to try.
9. 365 Organic Ranch Dressing
A product from Whole Foods Market, 365 Organic Ranch Dressing is where we draw the line on this list from mediocre ranch dressings to seriously tasty offerings!
As soon as we tried this organic dressing, we were blown away by its incredible flavor. Compared to many of its competitors on the market, this organic dressing is more wholesome.
It also includes non-artificial ingredients and, as the name suggests, is more organic than many other organic options on the market.
Yes, each ingredient is organic and high-quality in this ranch dressing, such as egg yolks and buttermilk.
Overall, 365 Organic ranch dressing is low in saturated fat and carbohydrates. And, it achieves all of this whilst being creamy and flavorful. For any vegetarian out there, this is your perfect match.
We also recommend checking out other products offered by Whole Foods, a health-focused grocer, for some of the most unique and organic options on the market.
8. Marzetti Simply Dressed Ranch Dressing
Next up we have this popular dressing from Marzetti. If you’re on the search for a healthier ranch dressing, then this simply dressed product may be right for you.
Yes, it may not be the most flavorful out there, but it is certainly lower in calories than many of its competitors.
Also, the fact it is stored and sold in the refrigerated section of most stores means it tends to feel and taste somewhat fresher, too.
Even the pickiest of ranch dressing connoisseurs would enjoy Marzetti’s offering. Not only is it super tasty, but it is pretty healthy to consume, too!
When you compare this to other ranch dressings on the market, well, there is little comparison in terms of healthiness.
This stands heads and shoulders above so many. But, its flavor seems to lack something that others have. We believe it’s well worth a try, though!
7. Newman’s Own Ranch
Here, we have a middle of the road ranch dressing. But, although the reviews are mixed, we’re placing Newman’s Own Ranch dressing in the middle of our list from personal experience.
If you have ever tried Newman’s products (you probably have), and are a fan, then you will certainly love this ranch dressing.
Heck, maybe you just want to try something new. If so, we recommend trying this dressing out for size.
Just bear in mind that most people either love or hate it. There’s only one way to find out, and that is to try it yourself!
The flavor profile of this dressing has been described as “tart” and “sour” by some reviewers.
This could be down to the vinegar or lemon ingredients, or a combination of both. But, others describe it as the best ranch ever!
All in all, whether you like this ranch dressing from Newman’s is down to your personal taste buds. For us, we liked it, but there are definitely better products available in stores right now.
6. Tuscan Garden Ranch Dressing
Some grocery stores have great deals on every aisle. One we found was this ranch dressing from Tuscan Garden. Not only is this a cheap brand to buy, but it’s mighty impressive, too!
Okay, it may not be the very best on this list (that’s still to come), but for its price, Tuscan Garden ranch dressing really impressed us!
It may not live up to the standards of restaurant ranch dressing, but this store-bought option will go down very well if you have any guests over for food.
If you want value for money, Tuscan Garden ranch dressing is one of the best on the market.
5. Annie’s Naturals Goddess Ranch Dressing

4. Ken’s Steak House Ranch Dressing
Ken’s Steak House Ranch Dressing may not be one of the most widely known on the market, but we want to change that!
This brand actually produces a high number of salad dressings, as well as marinades. Included is its own ranch dressing, which, by all standards, is pretty good in terms of taste and value for money.
Best of all, you can shop for this ranch dressing in just about any grocery store across the country.
If you like thick and creamy ranch dressing, you will love this! It has bold and zesty ranch flavors and is often ranked as one of the best by ranch dressing lovers.
The flavor profile is not overly strong, although you will taste some bleu cheese and herbs. Whilst being a very good ranch dressing, it’s not quite the best. That’s still to come…
3. Simply Balanced Organic Ranch Dressing
A popular choice at Target stores around the country, Simply Balanced Organic Ranch Dressing is the go-to dressing for anyone who is looking for something that is extra-thick and, of course, organic.
In fact, we reckon this might be one of, if not, the thickest ranch dressings on our list.
There’s no doubt that the flavor of this ranch dressing is as tasty as it is thick. This is mostly thanks to the additional organic garlic that shines through. No buttermilk or eggs are included, meaning the garlic flavor is pretty prominent.
With Target being in just about every town, you will always find something to suit your needs and taste buds.
Their Simply balanced options not only provide your taste buds with a treat but they are also beneficial to your health. Sounds like a win-win to us!
2. Litehouse Homestyle Ranch Dressing
If you don’t look closely enough in the store, you may miss this impressive ranch dressing from Litehouse Homestyle.
That’s because it is usually sold in the refrigerated area of supermarkets and grocery stores, which is not always a place you will look for ranch dressings.
In this list of the best ranch dressings, Litehouse Homestyle’s product is a worthy contender.
Yes, it may be a little more expensive than some others out there, but as soon as you try it, you will be happy to give a few more dollars.
It is extremely flavorful, with a texture that we wish every ranch dressing had.
When you read some reviews of this dressing, you will find many calling it “the best ever ranch dressing!” One happy customer even called it “life-changing!” If that doesn’t make you want to try it, we don’t know what will.
It can be hard to find a store-bought dressing that is like what Grandma used to make, but this is as close as you can get.
Yes, it’s one of the best on the market, but coming up is, in our opinion, the best ranch dressing in stores today!
