Super easy 3-minute buttermilk ranch dressing

By: Canadian Living
buttermilk ranch dressing Ranch dressing is so delicious on any crisp lettuce and it makes a fantastic dipping sauce for a vegetable platter, but did you know that you can whip it together in just a few minutes with stuff you probably have at home? This dressing is so good, you'll forget about buying anything in a bottle ever again. If you don't have buttermilk on hand, check out our tip to make a quick substitute using milk  here. The secret is to this recipe is the onion and garlic powder. I've tried this dressing with freshly grated garlic and it's far too overpowering. Powdered garlic delivers a subtle garlic flavour that won't have you digging through your pockets for a mint afterward. For an extra twist, throw in some chopped dill, tarragon, basil or parsley. Here's what you'll need: (makes about 1 cup) 2/3 cup sour cream (full fat)* 1/3 cup buttermilk 2 tsp Dijon mustard 1 tsp liquid honey 1/4 tsp each garlic powder and onion powder 1/4 tsp each salt and pepper In bowl, whisk together sour cream, buttermilk, Dijon, honey, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate for up to 5 days). *You can substitute with low fat or no fat sour cream, but the dressing won't be as thick, or tasty.    Photography by Irene Fong
