    Hi Spider, I have not made it yet because I am waiting until my next Grocery Outlet haul to look for plain greek yogurt and buttermilk. I can find better deals there so I have waited. If I can't find it there I will get elsewhere. I got my Mom all excited earlier talking about it! I will be using fresh and dried herbs/spices which I have here, just waiting on the base.

    I totally understand... I had intended to do a Grocery Outlet run today, but Chickadee was sick. Instead I worked on rotating and reorganizing the food storage since it's getting warmer (most of mine is in my uninsulated garage). Hopefully she'll be better enough that we can go tomorrow.

    I make ranch dressing all the time. I use a base of 1/3 cup mayonnaise (or yogurt)1/3 cup Daisy Light Sour Cream (all natural) and 1/3 cup buttermilk or more depending how thin you want it. Parsley and onion and/or garlic are all basic ingredients. Then I get creative. I started with the Martha Stewart ranch recipe, she adds some vinegar for a little zip of flavor that I was missing. I make variations - add feta cheese and bacos to go with salad with tomatoes. Capers are a great flavor addition as well.
