Move over commercially prepared ranch dressings, there's a new, easy to make dressing in town & it's comin' for your salad! Everyone I've served this to says it's the best ranch dressing they've ever had & ask me what brand it is. They're surprised when I tell them I made it from scratch & beg for the recipe.

Yield: 6 - 1/4 cup servings


1/2 cup Smart Balance or Hellman's Real mayonnaise

1/2 cup buttermilk

1/4 cup sour cream or plain Greek yogurt

1/8 cup packed fresh Italian parsley leaves, chopped

1 Tblsp chopped fresh chives

1 Tblsp chopped fresh oregano leaves
