Buttermilk Ranch Salad Dressing

This is one of our favorites - let it sit for at least a couple hours - it really helps - but if you can let it sit overnight it's that much better.

1 cup mayonnaise
1 cup buttermilk
1 TBS plus 1 tsp. chopped chives
2 tsp. minced parsley
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. cumin powder
1/4 tsp. onion powder
a pinch of cayenne
a pinch of paprika
salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

Blend everything together by hand or VERY briefly use a blender.

Makes 2 cups

NOTE: seems to me I even made it one time using 1/2 mayo and 1/2 sour cream - then the rest was the same. I think it helped not make it so "mayonaiseyy".

Did they really?.. I bought it just the first part of this year. I made a layered salad and used Hidden Valley. I found the packets at my local store.

Gosh, do I need to send a care package to New York? I'm going to the store in a few and I'm going to look for this stuff! I use it enough to miss it.

Combine ingredients; blend well. Store in an airtight container.
Give in decorative jars with directions below for dressing and dip.
Makes 1/2 cup of mix, or 8 portions for dressing or dip.

Dressing:
In a bowl or jar combine
1/2 cup of mayonnaise and
1/2 cup buttermilk.
