We say it a lot because we mean it; we absolutely love salads.

The second part of every successful salad story is to figure out which dressing pairs best with it. This CREAMY BUTTERMILK RANCH DRESSING is so delish we think it goes with lots of them.

Ingredients for Creamy Buttermilk Ranch Dressing

INGREDIENTS

Nothing on the shopping list for this recipe is tough to get. We have tested the recipe a few times and think it tastes better using full-fat mayonnaise and store bought buttermilk.

Buttermilk and mayonnaise

We know buttermilk can sometimes be tricky and after this story publishes, we expect a run on the stuff, lol! If you’re ever in a pinch, you can make your own by stirring a tablespoon of white vinegar into a cup of homogenized milk. Instant buttermilk, you’re welcome!

Fresh chives, dill and curly parsley

FRESH HERBS

We discovered that adding freshly chopped parsley, dill and chives to this creamy dressing takes it to a whole new level of fabulousness. There’s something about the subtle, fresh flavour of these herbs. Don’t forget to chop the herbs by hand and then stir them into the dressing after you’ve zipped all of the other ingredients together. Seeing those floating green herb bits is the goal.

ENJOY

Once your dressing is prepared, we suggest transferring it into a glass container with a lid or a storage bottle. Remember to place it in a visible location in your fridge so it’s at the ready for the next few days of healthy, good eats – it usually disappears by day four. Yup, it’s that good!
