America's homegrown dressing; ranch style salad dressing
is lower in fat than most, as it uses buttermilk for flavor and body. Ranch
style dressing is also excellent for fresh vegetable dip, or sprinkled on
baked chicken or fish, 1-2 tsp. per lb. To make 1 Cup dressing, mix 1 TB.
seasoning in 1 TB. water, let stand five minutes, then whisk with ½ Cup
buttermilk and ½ Cup mayonnaise. Also excellent as a fresh vegetable
dip. For a lower calorie version use low-fat mayonnaise, or up the proportion
of buttermilk, which will make the dressing thinner, but equally tasty.
Ranch dressing should be refrigerated, check the freshness date on the buttermilk
carton, and write it on the dressing bottle. Hand-mixed from: salt, bell
peppers, garlic, onion, sugar, black pepper, parsley, thyme, basil.
