I’m happy to be the first reviewer, the first, but not the last I’m sure, to report that this dressing is excellent. I had my doubts, given there was no sour cream in the recipe, but the higher proportion of buttermilk to mayonnaise took care of that. As for the mayonnaise, these type dressings do need it, but what I so appreciated in this recipe was that it did not dominate as I’ve found it does in some recipes I’ve tried. The recipe lends itself well to improvisation with any number of fresh herbs – in this case I used parsley, basil, and tarragon, already growing fresh in my Wisconsin garden. Dill would have been a nice choice too. Fresh thyme and/or oregano might also be interesting additions for a bolder taste. (I don’t think Hubs or I would have cared for the cilantro but that’s just our preference, I’m sure) The fresh garlic was apparent and I loved it – so much better than garlic powder, tho’ that would certainly work in a pinch. Great dressing Michellejo3 – we’ll use it often.

This definitely is a "Delicious" ranch dressing! And just as the submitter states, the fresh herbs really do make it stand out. I'm used to ranch dressing recipes that call for a mix of mayo, buttermilk, and sour cream but this was a pleasant surprise as I didn't have any sour cream on hand. I opted for low fat buttermilk and Hellman's light mayo - I think any mayo you use would be fine. I also subbed dill for the cilantro and wow - perfect over mixed greens!

Made this as was except changed out dill for cilantro, as other reviews suggest. As is, didn't enjoy the flavor or the consistency. It was extremely "runny," it was like pouring milk. Ended up adding sour cream/greek yogurt to get it to thicken up.
