Buttermilk Ranch

Did anyone else think that Hidden Valley was a real destination? I was so enamored by those silly commercials. The rolling green hills void of cow patties, the delicately hued cotton blowing on the line. . .rocking chairs. . .perfectly shaped trees. 

However, I’m not a fan of the dressing that inspired those commercials. I’m more of a balsamic and red wine vinegar sort of gal.  But Aaron loves ranch dressing and I love making homemade mayo and combining it with buttermilk, yogurt, lemon, dill, oregano, and garlic.  Put the mixture in a closed container and leave it in the fridge overnight so the flavors can bloom.

ETA (live journal style): If you want a good recipe for homemade mayo go here, half the recipe to make a small pickle jar for your Hidden Valley Guilty Pleasure. I look to the Gluten Free Girl for all manner of innovative recipes and I used her Buttermilk Ranch formula for this jawn.
