Homemade buttermilk ranch dressing.

Never been a huge fan of ranch dressing, not even when it became super popular in the late 80’s. Not even cool ranch chips, I know, what a loser. I’ve always been more of a blue cheese man myself. J on the other hand has always been a ranch critic. Ever since I first met her she would comment on the ranch of a place, Their ranch is not very good she’d say. She would even return to a place with average food just because they “had great ranch”. I’m guessing that’s why ranch was invented. Foods not good? Dip it in some ranch! Don’t like vegetables? Dip em in some ranch! This was some time ago because I haven’t seen her order ranch with her salad in years, she’s all honey mustard now days, but I’ll never forget how she used to be. This homemade ranch didn’t really get a reaction out of her, or at least no commentary. She did eat the whole salad so I guess that could be a critique in itself. I loved it on the other hand and want to dip everything in it, black olives, tomatoes, avocados, you name it. It could just be my amazement at how easy it is to make this beloved dressing from scratch with ingredients a lot of us have around the house already.

This quick salad was awesome people. Organic everything, spinach, tomatoes, carrots, avocados, cucumbers, oh baby! Crunch crunch!
