Buttermilk-Herb Dressing

Recently after I made Scallop-Herb Salad, I started craving ranch dressing.


But I didn’t really want ranch dressing, at least not the bottled kind…I wanted something made with fresh herbs and real buttermilk. Something I can pair with veggies straight from the garden and grilled chicken or fish on a summer evening and call it dinner, or serve with crudités and have an easy appetizer.

This dressing is simple, delicious, and perfect.

    Oh I wish I wasn’t eating dairy free right now, but I’m going to pin this for the future. A homemade ranch dressing is right for certain salads. Wouldn’t this be good on boiled potatoes too?

      Stephanie, Buttermilk is a little thicker than regular milk, so it adds a creamier consistency and also a little bit of tang. This recipe will definitely work with regular milk, the dressing will just be a little thinner with less of a tangy flavor.
