Buttermilk Herb Dressing and Dip

We eat a lot of salad in my family.  I think it's because I grew up with a salad (usually pretty simple) with almost every dinner.  We always ate the salad with our favorite bottled dressings--Ranch, Italian, Bleu Cheese all graced our table.  And although I'm okay with bottled salad dressing every once in a while, I just have a hard time buying them with all of that extra nonsense put into processed food these days.  I absolutely love Ranch dressing, but rarely eat it at home, instead settling for quick homemade vinaigrettes.  Now, don't get me wrong--I love a great honey mustard dressing made at home, but sometimes you just need a creamy Ranch-style dressing.

I came across this recipe at a friend's house.  She served a salad with this dressing on the side, and we all loved it.  I asked for the recipe, and she provided.  I adapted it a little for what I had in the house and to make it more herby, but it really is a keeper!  We ate some of it the first night it was made, and it was good, but wait a day, and the dressing will thicken up and all of the flavors will meld into a "Ranch dressing" that beats the bottle hands-down.

Buttermilk Herb Dressing and Dip

1 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 medium cloves garlic, minced
2 Tbl red onion, soaked in cold water for about 10 minutes and finely minced (or 1 large shallot)
1/2-3/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/8 tsp curry powder
1 Tbl fresh basil, minced
1 Tbl fresh thyme, minced
1 Tbl fresh dill, minced

Place all ingredients in a jar or other tall container with a lid and shake until mixed completely.  Store in the refrigerator for a few hours and up to three days.  Taste for salt before using.

Homemade dressings are so much better than anything we have ever bought in the store, all that chemistry in the mass produced brands alter the taste so much! This is a nice Ranch, thanks!

I just love the picture for this!

I've made my own buttermilk ranch dressing a couple of times, and can you believe that I never have put it on a salad? Always just pork chops!

Definitely going to have to give this one a go, and actually put it on some greens =)

A Washington Post review of court records, testimony by Trump and other accounts that have been out of the public eye for decades offers insights into his rise.
