Easy Buttermilk Dressing

Print

I love this dressing over fresh garden greens! Its refreshing, creamy, and just the right amount of tangy flavor. If you don’t have buttermilk, you can substitute it with yogurt mixed with water until it reaches the consistency of buttermilk

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

Making your own salad dressing is easy and inexpensive, and you have full control over the flavors and ingredients. Emilie's recipe is lower in fat and calories than most creamy dressings, as it uses buttermilk (or her alternative suggestion of yogurt) instead of mayonnaise or cream for flavor and body. Dijon and red wine vinegar add tang, lemon juice adds zip, and fresh chives brighten it all up. Serve chilled over salad greens, with fresh vegetables to dip, atop grilled fish, or even as a marinade for meats.
