Buttermilk Ranch Dressing

Doesn't everyone love Ranch Dressing?  I do, my family does and especially my little granddaughter!  She wants ranch on everything.  I know it's easy to just pour it out f a bottle you buy from the grocery store but I am really trying to stay away from processed foods.   So I made my own ranch dressing.  After a little trial and error,  this is what I got!  It is fantastic, so fresh, and tastes better than any bottled dressing I ever had.  Give it a try and see if you don't agree.

And it's great on a taco salad!

The Recipe:

Buttermilk Ranch Dressing

1 cup olive oil mayonnaise
1/2 cup low fat sour cream
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
¾ cup low fat buttermilk
½ teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon of dried chives, rehydrate with hot water
¼ teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon dried thyme
1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped
2 teaspoon fresh dill, minced

In a medium bowl, mix together the mayonnaise, sour cream and lemon juice.  Thin the dressing out with the buttermilk to make the consistency you desire.  Blend in the salt, pepper, rehydrated chives (not the water, just the chives), garlic, thyme, parsley and dill.  Cover and refrigerate at least one hour or until your ready to use.  Can be kept in the refrigerator in an air-tight container up to one week.

Happy Eating!
