AMISH FRESH HERB RANCH DRESSING
1/2 cup real mayonnaise
1/2 cup buttermilk, well-shaken
2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
1 tablespoon fresh chives, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
Sea salt or kosher salt, to taste
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Dash of white vinegar
1 Tsp Paprika
1 Tsp Cayenne powder
With the back of a fork, mash the minced garlic with a sprinkling of sea salt until it forms a paste.
Combine all ingredients and whisk well.
Refrigerate at least 1 hour before serving to let the flavors mix.
Consistency is a highly personal thing, as is garlic content. You can easily thicken or thin your dressing by using less or more buttermilk. Start with 1/4 cup if you prefer a thicker dressing. Add up to 3 cloves garlic, if you are a garlic fan.
