I’ve never been to a Houston’s restaurant. Their food sure looks awesome. So though I can’t say this copycat of their buttermilk garlic salad dressing is a true copycat, I can say it is fantastic. Like slurp-slurp-I-love-salad-more-than-ever-now fantastic. This is copycat Houston buttermilk garlic salad dressing is Ranch to the max. Amp’d up. Taken to another level! Thanks mostly to the garlic, but also a few other things too!
Make sure you let the dressing ‘get happy’ in the fridge overnight before serving. It makes a huge difference. And make a double batch because this copycat Houston’s buttermilk garlic salad dressing isn’t just for salad. It’s great for dipping wings. And veggies. Give the bottle a good shake (or the container a good stir) before serving.
If I do use this dressing for dipping, I like to serve it in these little dipping cups. And I even use the cups for server salad dressing, too. They are the perfect size for a single salad serving, or dipping wings, nuggets, tenders…. you name it. They also help me not over-dress my salad, which is something I tend to do with dressings like this Ranch. And they clean up easily too! They’re great!
