PW's ranch dressing.
I made this for a family member who is on a very restricted no salt diet. This dressing was a nice change to the vinegar/olive oil dressing that he has been using.
roasted garlic that I keep in my freezer. I love the mild sweetness that roasting brings out in garlic.
It smooshes well in my garlic press, which I love.
Next comes dried parsley.
I wish I had fresh, but this will do in a pinch ~
The dill (or dill weed) and chives grow from seed year after year.
They are rinsed and spun dry in my salad spinner.
My mom has never used the feathery dill that first comes up in the summer. She waits until late summer when the dill goes to seed to use in pickles.
Next is mayonnaise. I made this mayo with my immersion blender in less than five minutes. If you have never made mayo, you need to do it. It is SO easy!
Here is the sour cream. Go for the real stuff. No light or non-fat. There is more salt and sugar in the reduced/light stuff.
Next is any kind of vinegar you want: white, apple cider, or red. Whatever floats your boat.
Add a couple of tablespoons of homemade buttermilk and what do you have?
The best dressing on the face of the earth....
Regular dressing for us (with salt)
and a salt-free version for someone I love.
