(2017) Buttermilk Green Onion Dressing

Recipe Author: Conne Ward Cameron

Sort of a takeoff of ranch dressing but with fewer herbs. You can add anything you like, of course, but finely chopped green onions (or the tender part of the greens from that big garlic head) are perfect. It might seem like overkill to have buttermilk, sour cream AND mayonnaise in a dressing, but it works. Sorry I don’t remember where the original recipe came from. Works for your lettuce or if you want a more traditional mayo-based slaw. Just increase the recipe as needed for your greens.


1/2 cup buttermilk 1/4 cup crème fraîche or sour cream 2 tablespoons mayonnaise 2 tablespoons thinly sliced green onion tops 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice Kosher salt


In a medium bowl, whisk the buttermilk, crème fraîche, mayonnaise, chives, and lemon juice. Season to taste with salt and more lemon juice if needed. Should keep about two days but best if used right away. Delicious on a salad but also makes a great slaw dressing.
