How to make a simple buttermilk dressing
So easy it literally takes 5 minutes to prepare. Ok, so there is chill time just plan ahead.
Mince the green onions, parsley, and garlic. To lessen the bite of the garlic I grate it instead of mince. My family will complain if they get even the tiniest a bite of strong garlic.
Add all ingredients into a bowl or jar and whisk until thoroughly combined. Cover and chill at least one hour. It’s good after an hour but even better overnight!
Serve it over a mixed green salad.
Or use in a pasta salad! Best of all use this as a fresh vegetable dip, so irresistible!
- 1/2 cup buttermilk
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise
- 1 tablespoon green onion, minced (green parts only)
- 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, minced
- 1 garlic clove grated or minced
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
Whisk together all ingredients in a medium bowl or jar. Cover and chill for at least 1 hour (overnight for best results).
If a thinner dressing is preferred, stir in additional buttermilk 1 teaspoon at a time until desired consistency is reached. For thicker add additional mayonnaise.
Serve over a mixed green salad or as a dip.
