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.

This is one of my favorite cookbooks! If you like ranch dressing, you’ll love this. It’s exactly what you remember ranch dressing to be, without a lot of stuff that you don’t have in your kitchen. It amazed me the first time that I made homemade ranch dressing. We’re enjoying this tonight, with a huge salad with other veggies (radishes!) and ham, as soon as I finish writing this up.
