I know, I am posting a lot but when I am home I have a lot more time and get to do a lot more. So this morning I made the pickled onions, took down the Christmas tree and decorations, then I got hungry and thought of that broccoli in the frig and decided to make the ranch dressing to dip it in. This recipe was posted by a member on the forum here (Thanks Char) but she didn't have any measurements for the ranch dressing and I didn't take any myself the first time I made it so today I made sure to write down exactly how much I put in it.
2 cups plain yogurt
1 cup mayo
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. onion powder
chopped chives or green onion
1 tsp. dried parsley (or fresh if you have it)
1 tsp. lemon juice
a pinch of dry mustard
sprinkle of sugar (since my homemade yogurt is a bit sweet already, I could have done without this)
(I did not have any Tabasco that she said to put in it)
I shook it up in the jar but it really didn't mix it well and ended up having to use a large spoon to stir it up anyway. It's excellent! Best homemade dressing I have tried so far. If you like blue cheese (I don't) you would likely like her recipe for that dressing as well.
