Homemade Ranch

I made ranch dressing. Totally from scratch. I never thought of doing this before, but my mom has been into DIY ranch lately. My first attempt:

Ingredients
3/4 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup buttermilk
1/4 cup rice vinegar
1/4 cup roasted red peppers
3 tbsp chopped cilantro
2 tbsp chopped shallots
1 clove chopped garlic
1/2 tsp dried dill weed
1 tsp ground mustard
1.5 tsp fresh ground pepper

Place all ingredients in food processor and go!

Here’s the deal… This is not as thick as store bought, which could probably be fixed by using yogurt instead of buttermilk. It is good though, the red pepper, shallots, mustard and garlic make it more flavorful and exciting then I’m used to. It’s definitely different from the prepared stuff from the store!

I think I’ll have to keep testing it out!
