The BEST Buttermilk Ranch Dressing Recipe!

buttermilk

Is there anything more yummy than homemade Buttermilk Ranch Salad Dressing?  Wait ’til you taste it made with Homestead Creamery Buttermilk!  This buttermilk is so rich that it won’t immediately pour out of the bottle. You can see in the photo above that it coats the spoon, like the texture of sour cream. I have to admit I never liked buttermilk before I tried the Homestead Creamery brand and now I am a fan! I am planning to make Southern Cornbread with this buttermilk too. YUM!

Homestead Creamery is our local dairy located in Wirtz, Virginia:

Bubblybee Buttermilk Ranch Dressing

Makes 2 cups

2 cloves black garlic, minced (regular garlic can be substituted if black garlic is not available)

1 cup Homestead Creamery Buttermilk (if Homestead Creamery brand is not available in your area substitute 1/2 cup good quality buttermilk and 1/2 cup sour cream)

1/2 cup Duke’s mayonnaise (or your favorite brand of mayonnaise)

1/2 teaspoon medium peri-peri sauce

1/4 cup finely chopped chives

1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill

1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice

1/2 shallot grated

In a mixing bowl combine black garlic and buttermilk. Allow to stand while prepping other ingredients.  Add mayonnaise, peri-peri sauce, chives, basil, dill, salt, pepper, lemon juice and shallot to the buttermilk and garlic mixture.  Stir to combine all ingredients.  Chill until service.

Homemade Buttermilk Ranch Dressing is especially delicious on a fresh spinach salad with crispy peppered bacon!

I also drizzled some of the Buttermilk Ranch Dressing over our BLT’s (actually BST’s since I replaced lettuce with spinach on the sandwiches) for dinner this evening.
