Sathya's Kitchen Adventures that had caught my eye - Buttermilk Ranch Dressing! I'm a big big fan of Ranch dressing. I always go for it at the Hogs Breath Cafe, Subway and at Billy Baxters. Ranch Dressing is absolutely my favourite dressing and this recipe seemed simple! So I made it and it was fantastic. So delicious and creamy and all it needed was a green leafy salad - nothing fancy but the dressing was so full of flavour.
The huge bowl of green leafy salad with the Buttermilk Ranch Dressing was a massive hit at the BBQ and the bowl was empty when I went to collect it. Plus, the recipe makes plenty so we had it on our salads for the next two evenings. This recipe is a winner!
1 cup full fat mayonnaise
1/2 cup sour cream
buttermilk (to desired consistency)
1/4 cup italian flat leaf parsley
2 tablespoons fresh chives, chopped
lots of ground black pepper
dash of tabasco
Mince the garlic with a knife and then sprinkle about 1/4 teaspoon salt into the garlic and with a fork, mash the garlic and salt into a paste.
In a bowl, combine all the ingredients except the buttermilk. Stir. Add buttermilk until you have the desired consistency. Taste and season. Chill for a few hours. Serve on a green leafy salad.
