  • 1/3 cup buttermilk
  • 2/3 cup mayonnaise, preferably Hellman's
  • Apple cider vinegar, optional
  • Cooking Directions

    In a small bowl, mix all the herbs and spices together. Pour the buttermilk and mayonnaise into a bowl or a glass jar with a tight-fitting lid and whisk or shake well, making sure there are no lumps. Add the herb-spice mixture. Whisk or shake well until smooth. Let sit for 15 minutes, and then shake again. Taste for seasoning, adding vinegar if you want more tang. If it is too thick, add a little more buttermilk.
