Yummy, and very easy! This is a delicious creamy ranch dressing. I made this for a fresh spinach salad. It was super! I used the dried parsley, so only put in 1 teaspoon. And I put in 1 teaspoon of the white vinegar. Used 2 cloves garlic and chilled it for an hour. This is good stuff!! Thanks Miss Annie!!

This dressing is just real tasty. Followed your directions, except I used a splash of cider vinegar. It just added to the already yummie mix. Thanks for sharing a nifty recipe. Laudee C.

This recipe appealed to me because of the fresh ingredients instead of powdered. I made it more like a dip, so I used sour cream instead of the the buttermilk, and thinned it with just a tiny amount of milk. The flavor of the fresh ingredients really made a difference. We loved it. Next time I will just use one clove of garlic - I used two large ones and it was a bit garlicky for our taste, but outstanding anyway. I'll definitely make it again.

I tried this with the jalapenos, as I like a bit of zip in my salad dressing. Used an extra low fat mayonnaise, watching my diet. Really good. As suggested by PanNan I might give it a go with light sour cream next time to use on baked potatoes.

This is a great recipe. I did use the dash of vinegar. Good the first day and excellent the next day.

Wonderful and easy to make! I always love this stuff when I get it in steak houses, but I can never find anything close to it in any store. Thank you!!

This was good! I took PanNan's suggestion and used sour cream instead of buttermilk to make it more of a dip to serve with Buffalo Chicken Poppers. I also used light mayo. Tasty stuff -- thanks for sharing!

Perfect! Subbed 3/4 c plain yogurt and a splash of milk for the mayo and buttermilk. Used it for chicken nuggets. YUM!

This is a very good ranch. However, I think in the future I will use a heavy cream or something besides buttermilk. I don't know what it is but I always have an inkling in the back of my mind when using buttermilk that it is spoiled, I think that I just don't like the taste. Regardless the dressing was still good and had a nice zip.

This is a really good tasting ranch dressing. I made it as posted except I cut it in half. The flavor was really delicious and so fast to put together. I made it last night so it could blend flavors overnight. Used it for Cobb Salad and it was delicious. I am sure the peppers would add a great flavor too. Thanks for your recipe Miss Annie.
