Copycat Wingstop Ranch Recipe

Wingstop ranch dressing is not a sauce we usually eat in France, except in burgers. But I have to admit: this sauce is so flavorful and rich that I serve it with almost anything!

Salads, sandwiches, and even pizza… (I literally have no limit!). And it’s irresistible when served with these copycat Wingstop fries. I also love to use it as a topping for fajitas.

The best part? It requires only 4 ingredients and 5 minutes to make.

For this recipe, I used a homemade version of Hidden Valley Ranch mix. But using Hidden Valley Ranch mix is a great shortcut. So don’t bother!

Ranch Sauce Substitutions

  • This delicious buttermilk ranch uses the original flavor Hidden Valley Ranch seasoning packets. If you don’t have one, you can easily make homemade ranch seasoning. For this, simply combine 1 tbsp parsley, 1 tsp dried deel weed, 1 tsp garlic powder, 1 tsp onion powder, ½ tsp basil, ½ tsp black pepper and ½ tsp salt and voilà! 1 packet will make 1 tablespoon of this homemade mix.

  • If you can’t find buttermilk, you can also make your own. And I often use this solution at home (tried and tested!). For one cup of buttermilk, mix 1 cup of milk with 1 tablespoon white vinegar or lemon juice. Let it sit for 10 minutes, it will start to curdle. Stir the mixture and it’s ready!

  • For a healthier version of this homemade ranch recipe, you also substitute the mayonnaise with sour cream or yogurt.

How Long Does Wingstop Ranch Last in the Fridge

Homemade ranch dressing contains fresh ingredients and dairy products. So store for a maximum of 5-7 in the fridge. Don’t freeze. And if you have any doubt about freshness, check for any odors or changes in texture.
