Buttermilk Bliss: Ranch Dressing

It's been a while since I posted about my love of buttermilk. I still use it frequently and have moved from keeping a quart in the fridge to keeping a half gallon.  It plays a starring role in this recipe.

In our quest to eat more real foods, salad dressing is a topic that has come up repeatedly. Our top choice is ranch. Hands down. 

Hidden Valley ranch to be specific. 

And though I've tried and tried to find a recipe that was simple and real, we just never liked the taste as much of the bottled kind. So I kept buying it. And looking at all the nasty ingredients in disgust, trying to figure it out.

Until now.  

I finally concocted a winner. 

It's husband and kid approved!

And the best part?

There are only 3 ingredients.  So it mixed up really quick!

1. 1 cup mayo
2. 1 cup buttermilk
3. A tablespoon (or so) of the 21 blend organic season salt from Costco. 

Mix well in a jar and serve some over a tasty bowl of salad greens. 

Except you should probably be careful pouring when you mix it in a wide mouthed jar. Otherwise you might drown your greens and need to dump some off on another salad!

It doesn't taste just like Hidden Valley, but it was really good! And I'll be making this one again.  And FINALLY taking ranch off of my shopping list!!!

Are you a ranch lover too?
