Buttermilk w/ Fresh Fennel Ranch Dressing

Why get that goopy ranch dressing from the store when in minutes you can make this beautiful and tangy dressing good on salads and as a veggie dip.

This is a great base, change up the fennel frons to chives, fresh thyme, or other fresh herb.

Make it “lite” by using low fat yoghurt but keep the sour cream full flavored.

Makes around 2 cups

  • 1 cup yogurt
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 6 tablespoons sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 20-30 cranks freshly cracked black peppercorns about ½ tsp
  • Several pinches of kosher salt (to taste)
  • ½ tsp (or more) finely grated garlic (I use a garlic press)
  • 2 tsp. of freshly chopped fennel fronds
  • Pinch or more pepper flakes (optional)

Whisk together the first 6 ingredients in a small bowl until smooth.  Stir in the rest until well incorporated. Add more salt, pepper, and garlic as needed.
