The Delicious Dietitian Southern Ranch Dressing

Oil and vinegar is usually the salad dressing recommended by dietitians, but sometimes a craving for, cool, creamy ranch overtakes even the best intentions.  For those times, this low fat ranch dressing is sure to please!  Much better than the store-bought stuff, fresh herbs and The Delicious Dietitian Southern All Purpose Spice blend add fantastic flavor, and the Greek yogurt adds just the right touch of creaminess.  Serve over your favorite salad or as a dip for fresh veggies.

The Delicious Dietitian Southern Ranch Dressing

¾ cup olive oil mayonnaise
¾ cup plain fat free Greek yogurt
1 tbsp. lemon juice
1 cup skim buttermilk 
1 small bunch chives
Small handful parsley
1 clove garlic, chopped
1 tsp The Delicious Dietitian Southern All Purpose Spice Blend
Freshly ground black pepper
Directions:
Combine all of the ingredients in a blender or food processor starting with ¼ cup of the buttermilk and blend for 10 seconds.  Check the consistency and taste and blend in additional buttermilk as desired.  Taste and adjust seasonings as necessary.  Store in an airtight container (we like a Mason jar) in the refrigerator.
