Whether you opt to use it as a dressing, dip, or sauce, a side of ranch might be one of your only go-tos when looking for a condiment that compliments just about any serving of food. Heck, if you name it, I bet I can put ranch on it. Pizza? Put some ranch on it. Chicken wings? Put some ranch on it. A salad? Definitely put some ranch on it. It’s no wonder Trader Joe’s has it listed as the best-selling condiment in the U.S. in recent years, even outselling ketchup!

It also shouldn’t be a surprise that Trader Joe’s has just released their own version of the fan-favorite dressing, but with a tasty spin. According to one of my favorite Instagram pages, @Trader_Joes_Treasure_Hunt, TJ’s dropped a Buttermilk Ranch dressing — and shoppers are clearing it out of the refrigerator section quickly.

As it’s described on the Trader Joe’s website , “Each bottle is made with a classic recipe that starts with a base of cultured buttermilk, sour cream, and mayonnaise, and flavored with an array of aromatic herbs and seasonings including garlic, chives, dill, and shallots.” Also described as being “cool, creamy, and delightfully old-fashioned,” the dressing is said to pair with any leafy green. But beyond the salad, the beloved herby flavor of this ranch dressing (which contains 70 calories per each 2-tablespoon serving) also makes for a great enhancement to appetizers, savory snacks, and sandwiches alike.

For those of you looking to snatch up a few bottles of this new ranch dressing, you’ll be happy to know that it’s currently on sale for just $1.99 (original price, $3.99) at select stores. And with a price that low, I can’t find any reason why we all shouldn’t be heading to Trader Joe’s this week and picking up a bottle or two for this week’s meals.
