Inner Child (Both of You) Ranch Dressing


8 ounces of dressing


C = cup
t = teaspoon


  • 1 C mayonnaise

  • ¼ C pasteurized buttermilk

  • ½ C pasteurized plain whole milk Greek yogurt

  • ½ t onion powder

  • ½ t garlic powder

  • 1 lemon

  • 1 small handful fresh chives

  • 1 small handful fresh flat-leaf parsley

  • 1 small handful fresh mint

  • 1 t kosher salt


  1. In the bowl of a food processor, add 1 cup of mayonnaise, ¼ cup of pasteurized buttermilk, ½ cup of pasteurized plain whole milk Greek yogurt, ½ teaspoon of onion powder, and ½ teaspoon of garlic powder

  2. Thoroughly wash 1 lemon (including the rind), a small handful of fresh chives, a small handful of fresh flat-leaf parsley and a small handful of fresh mint under cool, running, drinkable water.

  3. Add the juice of half the lemon to the food processor.

  4. Mince the chives, parsley, and mint—aiming for 1 tablespoon-worth of each. Add to the food processor, along with 1 teaspoon of kosher salt

  5. Pulse in on/off bursts. Lift up a spoonful of dressing and pour it back into bowl. It should run freely; if not, thin it out with additional buttermilk. Taste for seasoning and lemon juice; adjust if necessary.

  6. Refrigerate for up to one week. Eat up, Mama!
