Adults and kids alike love the tanginess of this ranch-style dip. By using nonfat buttermilk and low-fat mayonnaise for the creamy base we've cut the fat substantially and eliminated the saturated fat. It only takes 15 minutes to make and keeps for 3 days so it's perfect for a healthy snack in a pinch. Source: EatingWell Magazine, August/September 2006

There was something "off" about this recipe that I can't quite put my finger on. It almost had a horseradish like quality after being in the fridge a day. I think its either the dijon mustard or the lemon juice. I'll stick to hummus until I find a better recipe. Angela Read More

This dip was a little too runny and sweet for my taste. I added 1/4 cup non-fat sour cream and a bit more kosher salt to meld the flavors; this thickened and toned the flavor. Stephanie Friday Harbor WA Read More

I thought this was a great dressing. We used a little bit more dill than the recipe calls for. My 5 yr old loves it with her veggies. Ridgwood NJ Read More

Very good. Simple and fast to prepare. Just buy a bag of cut veggies and in no time it's on the table. I usually prepare this when having a sandwich as a meal. Love cherry tomatoes and broccoli with this dip and baby carrots when their in the crisper. Michael Vancouver BC Read More

something was off about this. I thought it was a little too runny. And a little too lemony. Anonymous Read More
