Creamy Buttermilk Ranch Dressing (from scratch)

Tamara Bonneru


A.K.A Mock Roqueford Dressing..delicious and it is in NO WAY, low fat or healthy however, one way to reduce your fat and calories is to use half quart of light mayonnaise and half quart regular. It's not as quite as creamy or tasty but it's still really good.
This is a treasured recipe that can be used for veggie tray dips, chip dips, baked potato topping, salad dressing or whatever your mind can think of using it on. When my children were small it was the only way I could get them to eat raw veggies and they not only love this dressing but now, as adults, they love raw veggies!
