Totally did not eat the leftovers with a spoon

September 30, 2009

There is an episode of the Simpson's where Homer hallucinates about concubines bringing him a hose full of ranch dressing. My friend Pete has coveted that hose ever since. Seriously, the dude will put ranch dressing on anything. Probably even waffles. This dressing is way better than ranch, and, trust me, I love me some ranch dressing. If I had to choose a hose full of condiments, I just might choose this. Really, so easy, and so so good.

Buttermilk salad dressing
enough for 2 salads

1/4 cup low-fat buttermilk, well shaken
1 tablespoon sour cream
1/2 tablespoon mayo
1/4 cup finely chopped garlic scapes (or garlic chives)
1/8 teaspoon dry mustard
salt and pepper, to taste

Whisk all ingredients together.

Great on a simple green salad.

VARIATIONS: You could also use fresh basil, oregano, or tarragon in this with delicious results. If you do that, use only a tablespoon or two of fresh herbs, and add about a 1/4 teaspoon of finely minced garlic.
