Buttermilk Ranch Dressing

You will re-think about this very common salad dressing once you try this recipe! Packed with fresh herbs blended with mild tang of buttermilk is wonderful. Missions Conference attendees really enjoyed the salad made with this dressing.

This used to be what my husband had when he came home for lunch before I started working as a church cook! Those were the days....

Buttermilk Ranch Dressing

1/2 cup buttermilk
1/4 cup Hellmann's mayonnaise
6 tablespoon sour cream
1 tablespoon minced shallot
1 tablespoon minced fresh cilantro leaves
1 tablespoon minced fresh Italian parsley
1 medium clove garlic , minced
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon table salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

Whisk all the ingredients together in a mixing bowl until smooth. Make the dressing a day for the flavor to blend. Do not use dry herbs. Refrigerate up to 5 days.

Note: For reduced fat, you can substitute Non-fat buttermilk, sour cream and low-fat mayo (Hellmann's light). But increase lemon juice to 2 Tablespoons and the pepper.
