Homemade Ranch Dressing/Dip
1/2 c buttermilk (or plain yogurt)
1/2 c. sour cream
1/2 c. mayonnaise
2 tbsp. chopped parsley
2 tbsp. chopped chives or scallions
1 garlic clove, minced (or 1-2 garlic scapes, minced)
2 tsp. lime juice
coarsely ground black pepper
Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Mix well. Makes 1 1/2 cups.
* To lighten this recipe, use light mayonnaise or substitute plain yogurt for half of the mayonnaise. Using plain yogurt instead of buttermilk thickens the dressing, so that it can be used as a dip for veggies. Kids love this!
