Sriracha Ranch Dressing

Creamy smooth with Rooster sauce kick…

Spicy salad dressings turn your everyday greens into salads with serious attitude. Sriracha ranch dressing is a perfect mix of “smooth and fresh” meets tangy heat. Plus the garlic in the Sriracha sauce (with a pinch more of garlic powder) gives a boost of “bam!” to this dressing. Use it also as a fiery dipping sauce for fresh veggies and chicken wings.

Our version of Sriracha ranch dressing is a semi-short cut. It’s not as simple as taking a bottle of ranch and dashing in Sriracha, but not as complex as making ranch dressing from absolute scratch. We use some creamy ranch dip mix to provide the ranch flavor. Sriracha and cayenne pepper powder provide the spiciness. The cayenne is totally optional and only there as we spicy food fans always like a little extra heat.

Prep Time 5 minutes
Total Time 5 minutes


  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 2 tablespoons creamy ranch dip mix
  • 1 tablespoon Sriracha sauce
  • Pinch garlic powder
  • Pinch onion powder
  • Pinch cayenne pepper optional, for more heat


  • In a mixing bowl, add all ingredients and stir to combine.
  • Use immediately for salads or as a dip, or transfer the dressing into an airtight container and keep chilled until use (for up to one week).


Adjust the amount of Sriracha used to taste and heat preference. Sriracha sauce contains a decent garlic undertone, so consider removing the pinch of garlic powder if you are increasing the amount of Sriracha used. If you increase the amount of Sriracha you may also want to opt to leave out the optional cayenne pepper powder.
