Homemade Ranch Dressing

I made my own Ranch Dressing! It was awesome. I mean good old Hidden Valley is good but this stuff was great! 

What you need,
1 clove of garlic minced
¼ tsp salt
Rub the salt into the garlic with a fork until it forms a paste.
1 cup mayonnaise
½ cup sour cream
5 tbsp of buttermilk (you may need more or less, it just depends on how thick you like it)
3 tbsp vinegar (I just used plain white but you could use cider or red wine if you want to)
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
¼ cup fresh parsley, chopped
2 tbsp fresh chives, chopped
1 tbsp fresh dill, chopped
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
½ tsp fresh ground black pepper

In a bowl combine all the ingredients together and mix well. Adjust seasoning as needed, more salt/pepper etc. Let it chill for a couple of hours before serving. You can thin with a little more buttermilk or regular milk right before serving if it needs it.
It will keep for a week in the fridge.

Make a big green salad with whatever veggies you like and pour on the lovely ranch!
It makes a good amount so you will have left over to dip veggies or pizza or wings! YUM!
