In my attempt to start eliminating processed foods from my diet, I made ranch dressing the other day. I will never buy ranch dressing again. I got home from work at 6:15 and by 6:20 it was finished!
3/4 C sour cream (I used light)
3/4 C mayonnaise (light, as well)
1 Tbsp olive oil
2 tsp lemon juice
1 clove of garlic -- minced
a bunch of chives -- chopped
2/3-1 C buttermilk (I used slightly less than 1 cup)
Salt and Pepper to taste
Dump everything in the blender except the buttermilk. Blend until smooth and stream in buttermilk until it has reached your desired consistency. Taste and adjust seasonings. Unlike the store bought dressing this is slightly green, but tastes great!
