A Taste of Home

Today I made a jar of ranch dressing. I discovered the deliciousness of homemade salad dressings at a dear friend's home. After having tasted such amazingness I couldn't eat the store bought stuff any longer. There was no flavor at all! Especially a certain Hidden Valley! 
 It seemed so impressive that they made it from scratch. They assured me how easy it was so I thought that I would try it. They were right! 
Here is a recipe for ranch that I found and that is super easy. 

1 1/3 cup mayonnaise 
1 cup buttermilk (or 1 cup milk with 1 tablespoon lemon juice)
1 cup sour cream
4 cloves of garlic
2 teaspoons dried dill (or 1 tablespoon fresh dill)
1 teaspoon dried parsley (or 1 tablespoon fresh parsley)
1 teaspoon onion powder
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon pepper

This fills a 1 quart jar. I doubled the recipe for you. So if you have a smaller family just divide in half! I hope you all will try this and enjoy some better tasting salad this summer!
