Mazzio's ranch dressing has had fans in a craze for some time now, and copycat versions have emerged. Make yours in the comfort of your own home with these easy steps.

Mazzio's is an Italian eatery that has been around for decades, with the first shop opening in 1961 in Tulsa, Oklahoma. You might not know this, but it was originally known as The Pizza Parlour. The renowned restaurant has been delivering delicious Italian pastry cuisine ever since, with numerous spots spread around and outside Oklahoma.

However, besides Mazzio's delightful meals, a condiment is beloved by many who've enjoyed their food: their ranch dressing. People loved this dressing so much that they've created copycat versions at home. Read on if you want to learn how you can make your own.

1. Add your cilantro, basil, lime juice, salt, chives, and garlic into a food processor and blend until everything is finely chopped and mixed.

2. Then, add your mayonnaise, buttermilk, parsley flakes, and olive oil and blend until you have a creamy and smooth mixture.

3. If you want to taste the cream cheese chunks, add this ingredient and stir until it is well mixed with your dressing.

4. If not, blend it with the ingredients in step two.

It's worth noting that some prefer to whisk their ingredients instead of using a blender; however, this is up to you. Now that your dressing is ready, why not stay a little longer in the kitchen and try this Harissa Honey Chicken bowl recipe?
