Hi everyone! Tonight I want to share with you a recipe for ranch dressing. Ranch dressing is my Dad’s favorite salad dressing and I have tried time and again to make it for him, but not with the best results. I was stupidly trying to make ranch dressing without buttermilk, because I don’t normally keep it in my kitchen and my Mom doesn’t keep it in hers either. I tried sour cream, mayonnaise, milk, yogurt, and various other combinations of ingredients, with only so-so results.
I finally broke down, and tried a recipe with buttermilk, and I am telling you; it is the key ingredient! Totally worth it, and I have found many ways to use the leftovers, such as making buttermilk biscuits! This ranch dressing was really yummy, and a hit with my Dad! Here is the recipe!
- 1 cup of Mayonnaise
- 1 cup of 1% buttermilk
- 1 Tbsp finely minced onion
- 1 Tbsp finely minced fresh chives
- 1 Tbsp finely minced fresh cilantro
- 1/2 tsp of dried dill
- 1/2 tsp of garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp of ground black pepper
- 1/2 tsp of salt
Combine all ingredients together in a bowl and whisk together until the ingredients are well combined. Refrigerate for a couple of hours or overnight for the best results. This gives some time for the flavors of the spices to come out. Serve over a salad, or with fresh veggies as dip!
Makes approximately 16 servings. WW P+: 2 points per 1/8 of a cup (1 serving)
