Yield: Dry mix makes about 4 batches. Each batch is 24 T of finished dressing.
Dry mix:1 1/2 T salt
2 tsp dried parsley flakes or dried dill
1 tsp black pepper
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
For dressing:1/2 cup Hellmann's mayonnaise*
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup milk or buttermilk
1 T dry mix
1-2 T minced fresh herbs optional**
- Pre-mix the dry ingredients and store in a plastic or glass container at room temperature indefinitely.
- To make the dressing, thoroughly mix the wet ingredients and add the dry mix.
- Add herbs if desired.
- Dressing will firm up in about an hour, but you can eat it right away.
- Add more milk, buttermilk, or water if it's too thick.
*The mayonnaise makes the difference. Use Hellmann's. Other mayonnaises are too sweet and will throw off the flavor.
**Fresh parsley or dill will work to give the dressing a fresh flavor. A great way to use those garden herbs!
I like to make a double or triple batch and put it in a glass jar in the pantry. It lasts a long, long time.
