This is a beautiful, creamy buttermilk ranch dressing you can make in minutes. We are starting to make all of our own dressings at home using fresh, organic ingredients whenever possible. This will transform your spring greens into a little work of art on a plate.

3/4 cup real mayonnaise, no substitutions (don’t use lite)

3/4 cup plain greek yogurt

1 Tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

2 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice

1 cup buttermilk

5 green onions (including the little green tops)

1 large clove garlic

salt and pepper to taste

Place all in the bowl of a food processor. Blend until well incorporated and no big chunks remain. Pour into a canning jar. Refrigerate, and use within 2 weeks.

    Ooooh! This sounds lovely. Also, I’m on a real salad kick right now, and I tire of dressings very quickly. So thanks for adding to my repertoire!! xox

    That sounds so delicious! Do you think this would work with Hemp milk? If so, how would you adjust it? I never have Buttermilk on hand because I try never to use anything pasteurized. Thanks!

      Hi Victoria! Hmmmm…well, I’ve never tried hemp milk. Is it thick like cream or thin like skim milk? if it’s thinner, I’d use a bit less and add a teaspoon or two of yogurt…if you don’t eat yogurt you could probably just try it without…it really depends on how thick you like your dressing 🙂

    Sorry for the delay in replying! I just saw your response!
    I found out the Hemp milk has some ingredients that are not good, so I decided to use my homemade kefir, instead! I’m sure that would work well! I wasn’t making kefir when I first saw your recipe, or I would have automatically used it! Thanks so much!
