“Ranch dressing is just American tzatziki”

Tzatziki sauce (yogurt mixed with cucumbers, garlic, salt, olive oil, sometimes with vinegar or lemon juice, and herbs such as dill, mint, parsley and thyme) has been compared to ranch dressing (buttermilk, salt, garlic, onion, mustard, herbs and spices). The sauces do not share many ingredients; the comparison is more cultural, since both are used for many local foods.

Wikipedia: Tzatziki
Tzatziki, cacık or tarator is a dip, soup, or sauce found in the cuisines of Southeast Europe and the Middle East.[needs IPA] It is made of salted strained yogurt or diluted yogurt mixed with cucumbers, garlic, salt, olive oil, sometimes with vinegar or lemon juice, and herbs such as dill, mint, parsley and thyme. It is generally served as a cold appetizer (meze) or a side dish.

Wikipedia: Ranch dressing
Ranch dressing is an American salad dressing usually made from buttermilk, salt, garlic, onion, mustard, herbs (commonly chives, parsley and dill), and spices (commonly pepper, paprika and ground mustard seed) mixed into a sauce based on mayonnaise or another oil emulsion. Sour cream and yogurt are sometimes used in addition to, or as a substitute for, buttermilk and mayonnaise.

Tzasiki is yogurt, cucumber, lemon, and dill. That’s not what’s in ranch dressing. The only ingredient they share is dill.
