Hi, it’s Adam. I haven’t posted on here in a while, but here’s something I’m excited about. I’ve been making a lot of my own salad dressings lately, and this is one of my favorites… probably the best ranch dressing I’ve ever had. The recipe is pretty much straight from Bittman, but I add a little onion powder. The real secret though, is the buttermilk powder.
Adam’s Ranch Dressing:
1 c. Mayonnaise
1 c. Buttermilk
1/4 c. Buttermilk Powder
1/4 c. Fresh Chives (or parsley)
Pinch of salt
Fresh ground pepper
1/2 tsp Onion Powder
Put all the ingredients in a pint-sized mason jar and and shake until mixed well. Taste and adjust seasoning (if needed) and store in fridge. Use within a few days.
*Powdered Buttermilk is usually found in the baking section, the can we picked up at the co-op looks like this:

love the dry buttermilk. did you notice you need to store the dry buttermilk in the fridge after you open it?

Yes, we keep it in the fridge. Seems to last a long time that way.
