      Creamy Jalapeno Cilantro Ranch Dressing

      3/4 cup Sour Cream
      3/4 cup Mayonaise
      Juice of 1/2 Lime
      1 small bunch of Chives (equal to about 2 Tablespoons chopped)
      Small handful Cilantro
      1 or 2 Jalapeno Peppers, seeds and stem removed (depending on how hot you like stuff)
      1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon Salt
      1/4 teaspoon fresh ground Black Pepper
      1 clove Garlic
      1/4 to 1/2 cup Buttermilk

      Place all ingredients in a blender or food processor. Blend for 10 seconds. Check consistency and blend in buttermilk. (Use less buttermilk for dipping, more for dressing). Store in an air-tight jar in the fridge.
      Makes about 16 (2 Tablespoon) servings.

      Enjoy! Thanks; Virginia

      For anyone GF/DF here is my Garlic Ranch Dressing recipe:

      Creamy Garlic Ranch Dressing
      This was a major success, especially for those who have been waiting for a RANCH dressing! I made it
      simple by doing it all in one blender batch.

      Ingredients:
      ½ cup almonds, whole raw(not soaked or sprouted)
      ½ cup water
      1 cup light olive oil
      4 TBSP lemon juice
      1 large or 2 small cloves garlic

      1 cup water

      1 TBSP nutritional yeast flakes

      1 TBSP cane juice crystals (can use any type of sweetener)

      1 TBSP whole peppercorn

      2 ½ tsp sea salt

      2 tsp Dijon mustard

      1 tsp dill

      1 tsp chives

      1/2 tsp onion powder

      Directions:

      In a blender, blend the almonds and water. Then drizzle in the olive oil. Once emulsified, add the lemon
      juice and blend.

      Turn off blender. Add the remaining spices and blend. If it’s extra thick, you might have to make a well
      with a spatula for water to get down to blades. Blend until you don’t have any big pieces of garlic and
      peppercorn. It should be a pourable consistency but will also thicken up even more after in fridge
      overnight. ENJOY!
