Refreshing Cucumber Ranch Marinade





In the following steps I will show you how to make a quick, delicious cucumber marinade with ranch dressing. This is one of my grandma's "signature" recipes and I haven't found anyone that hasn't like it!

Great to make in the early afternoon for a refreshing snack all day.

Step 1: Tools & Ingredients

  • 2 - Cucumber
  • 1/8 Cup - Ranch
  • 1/4 Tsp - Vinegar
  • 1/8 Tsp - Salt
  • 1/8 Tsp - Pepper


  • Knife
  • Vegetable Peeler
  • Mixing Bowl w/ Lid

Step 2: Peel & Slice

  • Peel Cucumbers (You don't have to but my family doesn't like the skins.)
  • Slice Cucumbers to desired thickness.

Note: I leave my slices a little thick to maintain the crunch after it marinades

Step 3: Mix & Marinade

  • Mix the entire ingredient list together.
  • Apply Lid
  • Shake, Shake, Shake, Shake for 30 seconds. (This was my favorite part as a kid)
  • Put in fridge for 2-3 hours.

Step 4: Taste & Tweak

After your marinade has been sitting for atleast a few hours:

  • Shake once more
  • Taste your marinade
  • Salt/Pepper to taste

    I was excited to see this recipe. I made it and am disappointed as it just tastes like cucumbers. Can't tell ranch was even added.
