Authentic ranch with fresh herbs

This is a simple guide to creating the delicious standard the way it should taste. You will notice a stark contrast between this fresh, tangy gem and the mushy goop that passes for “ranch” in commercial bottles.


Delicious, fresh ranch

Ingredients

1 Cup low-fat buttermilk, shaken

1/4 Cup low-fat mayonnaise

5 Tbsp non-fat Greek yogurt, plain

4 Tbsp white wine vinegar

2 Tbsp fresh Italian parsley, finely chopped

3 Tbsp fresh chives, finely chopped

3 Tbsp fresh dill, finely chopped

1 medium garlic close, finely chopped – or – 1 1/2 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp onion powder

3/4 tsp Kosher salt (or more to taste)

1/4 tsp fresh ground black pepper


Directions:

Combine and mix all ingredients until herbs are evenly distributed. Store and chill for at least one hour, allowing the flavors to set. This delicious dressing stores great in a mason jar, or a squeeze bottle. Try it on the usual suspects of salads and greens, or dress up plain chicken or drab sandwiches with a blast of fresh tang.
