- 1 packet traditional Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing Mix
- 1 c. mayonnaise
- 1 c. buttermilk
- 2 tomatillos, remove husk, diced
- 1/2 bunch of fresh cilantro, lightly chopped
- 1 clove garlic
- juice of 1 lime
- 1 jalapeno, chopped and seeded (optional)
Pour all ingredients into a blender and mix for about one minute, or until thoroughly blended.
Note: I never actually buy buttermilk from the store so if you don't have it on-hand, simply put 1 Tbsp. lemon juice or white vinegar in a bowl and pour in enough milk to equal 1 cup. Let it sit at room temperature for 5-10 minutes until it begins to get a little chunky on the top and pour into ingredients.
I always find tomatillos in the fresh produce section either by the tomatoes or by the spicy peppers like jalapenos and habaneros.
