    MarraMamba's Note:

    Inspired by lainey's Light Buttermilk Ranch Dressing I made my own giving it a citrus twist as well as other things. You can switch the lime for lemon, orange or tangerine as well. The lime not only gives it a wonderful flavor but also thickens the buttermilk further.

      This was good! I liked the mixture of herbs and skipped the thyme because I had Herbes de Provence. I think I would thicken it up a bit next time. I also think that if you let it sit longer, the dry ingredients would not feel so dry (if that makes sense!). Made for Everyday's a Holiday tag. Thanks! :)

      This had a different taste to me and I"m assuming it's from the lime. A bit too bitter for my taste and so I added a few more twists of fresh black pepper and seasalt. I did omit the herbes de provence. All in all a good dressing that went well with my salad I have most nights. I do have some of the DryBase left and so once the liquid part is gone from what I made today, I"ll try this using the dry in just buttermilk and plain yogurt. This is just my personal preference as I like things to be a bit more sweet.:-) Made for HolidayTag.

      I'm not usually much for creamy dressings, but THIS SALAD DRESSING IS REALLY NICE & VERY NICE TASTING! Used it first on a predominantly orange & jicama salad, but am looking forward to topping other salads with this dressing as well! Thanks for a great keeper!
