      I liked this quite well, the cucumber bits in the dressing did not appeal to others, so I'm splitting the difference. I made about half of this, probably went a bit heavier on the scallion/parsley/dill, as I like all of those in a salad. Very refreshing, and so much nicer than commercial ranch dressings, which I cannot bear to even look at any longer.

      Very good and tangy dressing. I halved the recipe which worked fine. loved the buttermilk in this. Using the large holes to grate the cucumbers made the dressing a little chunky so next time I will use the small holes. I wouldn't blend it though, because the little chunks of cucumbers were nice. Thanks for sharing.

      I was looking for a way to use up some cukes and found this dressing. I love making my own! This one is good, with a bit of a bite (maybe from onion and cayenne). I used 1 green onion (white/light green) and didn't have shallots. Used the 1/2 tsp sucanat (sugar), only 1/8 tsp dried dill. I put it all (including the cukes) in a blender, rather than by hand. Easy to make and made 2 cups exactly.
