no buttermilk *buttermilk* ranch dressing



no buttermilk "buttermilk" ranch dressing


The other day I wanted a creamy, ranch like dressing.  I knew I did not have any buttermilk, but that was fine. I would make something similar, the essence of ranch without the tradition.

I created this dressing using mayo, 1/2 and 1/2 and a bunch of spices. Yet when I tasted it, there was something missing. I thought it needed an acid to balance it out. So a splashed some apple cider vinegar in. That is exactly what it needed.

After I made this I realized, I actually kind of did make a buttermilk ranch dressing. When a recipe calls for buttermilk and you do not have any, you can add some vinegar to milk. Hence, my no buttermilk "buttermilk" ranch dressing.

Ingredients:


1/2 cup mayo
1/4 cup half and half
2 pinches salt
Pinch pepper
pinch parsley
pinch thyme
pinch oregano
pinch dry mustard
pinch dill
Splash Apple Cider Vinegar

Directions: 

Mix all ingredients together. You can use more or less herbs, or even different herbs and I am sure it will still taste great. I literally did not measure the vinegar. I just poured a bit in and tasted.
