I was craving a creamy dressing. This one fit the bill. I only put in 2 tsp of the dried dill and I think even 1 would have been sufficient. Besides that it was wonderful on my salad. It isn't a thick creamy dressing like a traditional ranch but I would rather use this than store bought. I like to know and be able to pronounce what I'm putting in my body. Thanks EW!! How long does this last in the fridge? It makes quite a bit! Read More

JUST A QUESTION i wonder if anyone has tried adding a thickener to the dressing? Like the thickener added to the liquids of people with swallow problems? Read More

I've read many reviews on this site and I have one question; why are some of you even using these recipes if you're going to alter them to the point of being completely unhealthy? The recipes are carefully designed to provide nutritional benefits. If you don't like them go to the Food Network site. Read More

I always use low or no fat plain greek yogurt instead of buttermilk or may in dressing it comes out a little thicker and tastes great. Read More

Try using low fat yogurt or sour cream instead of buttermilk. It will thicken it without adding extra calories. Read More

The runniness can be arrested with the addition of talcum powder. If runniness persists simply throw it out and go to the grocer for ready made. Read More

The flavor was right-on in this dressing but it was VERY runny... not much clinging to my greens and a "soup" in the bottom of my salad dish!! Read More

You have to mix this dressing by hand or it is super thin. Still on the thinner side as far as dressings go but the flavor is great!!! Read More

The solids in buttermilk settle on the bottom of the carton so you have to shake it well first to prevent the runniness. Read More

Maybe using some powdered form of buttermilk instead of all liquid form would help with the runny issue. jan Read More

Instead of using low-fat buttermilk (which you can never overcome the runny problem) I splurged on full-fat. As for low-fat mayo a lot of low-fat mayos are garbage and just have more soybean oil instead of the eggs and the eggs are what give it flavor. Soybean oil isn't good for ya either. I've found the best lowfat mayo after literally trying out a dozen kinds: Lemonaise Light. It's pricey but gives a great mouthfeel. It's available on Amazon if it's not in your local grocery store. Also I used much more buttermilk than lemonaise because in the called for amounts I got a very thick texture because both full fat buttermilk and lemonaise light are on the thick side. I also used chives as my fresh herb. Delicious! Read More
