Foodie with Family: Mix it up with DIY dressing

(Continued)

Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes before serving.

Now if you’re like my husband and I, you might dig the idea of the fresh herb laden ranch dressing. I won’t leave you hanging, it’s too delicious not to share, even if you just make it for comparison’s sake.

It’s so good, in fact, that it’s earned its name: fabulous homemade ranch dressing.

Fabulous homemade ranch dressing

1 1/4 c. cultured buttermilk (homemade, or store bought)

1 c. sour cream

3/4 c. mayonnaise

1/3 c., packed, finely chopped dill

1/4 c. finely chopped parsley (flat-leaf or curly)

1/4 c. finely chopped chives or green parts only of scallions

3/4 t. finely chopped fresh oregano

1 large clove garlic, peeled and finely minced or pressed (or 1/2 t. granulated garlic)

1 t. salt (or more to taste)

freshly ground black pepper to taste

In a mixing bowl, whisk together all ingredients until smooth.

Pour into a canning jar or pitcher, cover tightly and refrigerate for up to 10 days.
