  1. how come the amounts in this recipe and your other hidden valley with fiesta are so different when mixing up? 1 T instead of 2 T. of mix and then 1 -1/4 cup sour cream to 1/4 c.

    milk and then 1 cup mayo and 1 cup buttermilk. Whats the differences? Thanks!

  2. for anyone who is very allergic to gluten here is the recipe i have to use:
    2 Tablespoons each:
    4 Tbls. onion powder
    2-3 tsp. pepper
    1-4 tsp salt (I use Real Salt)
    1/4 to 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
    (All ingredients are dried)

    Mix and shake well in a small glass jar (8 oz. works well) and store at room temperature.
    To Make dressing:
    Shake well before measuring. Stir about 1 1/2 to 2 tsp.

    dry mix into 1 cup or any combination of the following: buttermilk, mayo, or sour cream. (I prefer half mayo and half buttermilk but my friend prefers sour cream)
    You can add a minced clove of garlic or a splash of red wine vinegar to finish it off.

    If you don’t use fresh garlic you can add 1 Tbls of garlic powder right into the original mix when you make it up.

    Yours sound awesome but I’m so very allergic to gluten now so I had to come up with something that works great for us.
