Another great mix! I'm lovin' my collection of awesome mixes; and my kids are excited too, to have them! This is really good the way it is written, but it is also good if you want to use buttermilk instead of mayo and sour cream (I've tried it both ways). It's not only great on salads, but to use for recipes that call for ranch salad dressing mix.You can use the powdered buttermilk (enough for 1 1/2 cups) instead of the mayo and sour cream, and just add the 1 1/2 cups of water to the mix. Very tricky! A great deal more healthy than a purchased mix, and tastier too, not to mention $ savings!

  • 1 c

How To Make

    To clarify if I may. As I stated above, you can include the amount of buttermilk mix it takes to make up 1 1/2 cups of buttermilk in the mix, then when making up the mix, just add 1 1/2 cups of water instead of the mayo and the sour cream or yogurt. You don't want to use both the buttermilk, the mayo, and the sour cream or yogurt!

    Put all ingredients in a blender and blend until mixed well. For a spicy jalapeno ranch, add the chopped jalapeno and blend. Store in a glass jar in the fridge until ready to use. Sorry that I don't have pic yet!

    There are actually two recipes on JAP for homemade Hellman's or Best Foods Mayonaise. I looked at both ingredient lists and the one that matches the jar is this one! This guy seems to have done his homework. I have pinched it and you may want to do that either! http://www.topsecretrecipes.com/Hellmanns-Best-Foods-Mayonnaise-Recipe.html The pinched address is:https://www.justapinch.com/recipes/hellmanns-best-foods-mayonnaise.html
