1 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1/8 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon mustard powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley
1 teaspoon chopped fresh chives
1/4 teaspoon of dry dill (or a teaspoon chopped fresh)
1 In a medium bowl, stir together the buttermilk and mayonnaise until fully mixed. Add in the other ingredients, adjusting for taste.
Makes about 1 1/2 cups. Keeps for a week, covered in the fridge.
If you add a few cloves of garlic and some oregano, then it is a garlic ranch. If you add it to cooled tri-color rotini, it is the garlic pasta salad that the white house grill makes (make sure you refrigerate for a few hours).
I have to say this is so much better than store boughten or even the packages of ranch!
