    We use 1/2 C Mayo and 1/2 C SOUR CREAM. It makes it nice and thick and gives it that "little something extra"!!!

    Do you have to use buttermilk or will 2% milk work as well?

    No, you really can't use 2% milk and have the flavor be close. Buttermilk (despite it's name and consistency) is low in fat and has a slightly sour flavor. 2% Milk contains butterfat and does not have the same flavor or consistency.

    I am anxious to try this, we love Hidden Valley Ranch and it is so expensive. I want to cut the recipe down to try it and I don't want to buy a whole thing of buttermilk. I usually use an emergency substitution when a recipe calls for buttermilk. You stir 1 TBS of white vinegar or lemon juice into 1 cup milk and allow to stand for 5 minutes. Do you think this will this work?

    When I make this I use powdered buttermilk and therefore I can use 2% milk

    I have been using this recipe for quite a few years now and love it. In the last few years I have ahd to watch the fat intake, due to high cholesterol. I love salads and I do not like fat free dressings, hat is until this Greek yogurt fad has made its way around, wow instead of sour cream I use this with no fat milk, it makes an awesome dressing, I had my dietician figure the calories and it worked out to be about 50 calories for a 1/4 cup of dressing, and almost no fat count and tastes wonderful. The catch is to make sure you let it set in the fridge so the flavors can bloom. All hale to the one who made this recipe, you let me have my favorite dressing and still can stay on my diet, oh and I take the garlic and onion salt out and salt each dressing to taste. Thanks for this recipe Not to mention the money you will save.

    Made this recipe today. It was yummy, however I didn't have buttermilk soooo I used the mayo but subbed 1/2 c. sour cream and 1/2 c. 2% milk for the buttermilk. A little thinner but very tasty. I made only a half batch to try but will be making more. My brother eats the stuff on sandwiches all the time so this will be a money saver. Just one packet costs over a buck where we are.

    Hi I want to make this but can anyone tell me how many tablespoons of this would equal one packet of store bought mix? I have a soup I want to try this in too and it calls for a packet but not sure how much to use.

    It should work. I use the vinegar/milk recipe when I make the store bought mix.
