Homemade Buttermilk Ranch Dressing
So, so good! You'll never want to go back to the bottled stuff again.Yield: Makes about 1-1/3 cups
|1/2 cup||sour cream|
|1/4 cup||mayonnaise, best quality such as hellmann's or duke's|
|2||garlic cloves, minced (see note)|
|1 1/2 teaspoons||dried dill|
|1/4 cup||finely chopped fresh chives|
|2 teaspoons||fresh lemon juice|
|dash||few tabasco sauce, optional|
Combine all of the ingredients in a medium bowl and whisk well. Taste and adjust seasoning if necessary. Chill until ready to serve.
Note: The dressing will keep well in the refrigerator for 3-4 days. The garlic flavor gets stronger the longer it sits, so you might want to cut back if you're planning on making it in advance. The dressing will thicken up to more of a dip consistency as it chills.
