BFF Buttermilk Ranch Dressing

Buttermilk Ranch

Felix and I love to cook together, because, well, we’re BFFs. We love (and hate, ha ha) so many of the same movies, foods, bands – you name it. And we truly love a good buttermilk ranch dressing. We’re not talking about that bottled stuff, full of thickeners and preservatives, or that powdered salt packet that we admit works in a pinch sometimes. Oh no, we mean the GOOD stuff, the one you make for company, for family and for BFFs. This is that one. It’s so deliriously good, you’ll be dipping and dunking veggies, fries, pizza, whatever you want in it (you can dip with no shame around your BFF, right?). Seriously though, this dressing is perfect for sandwiches and appetizers, and it’s absolutely blissful on a green salad. Try it on our Mighty Wedge Salad, but make sure you’re sitting down and holding on to something, so you don’t fall out of your chair in sheer joy.

The secret to this dressing is pretty simple: lots of fresh herbs and a bit of hot sauce, because we like it like that. It’s super easy, too. All the ingredients go into the food processor, and the dressing stores for a week or so in an airtight container in the fridge. You won’t want any other ranch dressing after you’ve had this one. Try it and tell us us what you plunked into it. We won’t tell. We’re all BFFs here.
