Homestyle Ranch Dressing

Ok...I admit it. I'm an American and I LOVE ranch dressing...but only the good stuff. Amazingly, it doesn't take much to recreate the real deal in your own kitchen. Even without all of the preservatives that inferior store bought versions contain, this concoction lasted about a week in my refrigerator.  All you need is some sour cream, buttermilk, and some fresh herbs. Here's my recipe:

1/4 cup sour cream
1 cup buttermilk
2 tbsp fresh dill, minced
1 tbsp fresh parsley, minced
1 tbsp fresh chives, minced
2 tbsp shallots, minced
1/2 tsp garlic powder
salt & pepper TT

Combine all ingredients and refrigerate for an hour or two prior to enjoying. VoilĂ !
