Ranch Dressing

 I keep showing this but I'm overwhelmed at the display they are putting on.

 I realized that I actually have 3 different purple clematis mixed in with the rose.

 I made big salads for my kids this morning filled with lots of the lettuces I am growing.  I used a bunch of my herbs to make this ranch dressing.  It takes maybe 10 minutes to make this and it's so much better than store bought.

    Put 3/4 c. mayo, 3/4 c. sour cream and 1 cup of buttermilk in a bowl.

 Add 3 T. of granulated garlic, 1/2 tsp. of black pepper, 1/2 tsp. salt, 1 T. granulated onion and a bunch of chopped fresh herbs in a bowl.  I used chives, dill and parsley.

I doubled it and made about 4 cups total.


Your clematis is magnificent! Let's hope the Pens win the Cup tonight, eh?
OMG! I am so jealous of your flowers. Since it started getting hotter than Hades here my roses have given up. Okay, I have been looking for the perfect Ranch dressing to blow my husband's mind. He puts that stuff even on pizza. I have to see if this is the one.
The clematis looks amazing. Someone was showing me around their home once and he stopped and said very proudly (pointing to Clematis) this is my chlamydia plant it's so beautiful I just love the purple flowers. I thought no he doesn't think that is the name, he can't. Called it that again at least twice. Totally seriously. My niece was with me and when we were alone we both said he meant clematis but.. HEHE.
Also thank you for the ranch recipe. I love ranch dressing to an insane degree. I have made it from the packet but never thought you could make it from scratch. It's like a miracle, I always considered ranch like it's its own element like plutonium or helium and thought it was impossible to make.

I could still kick myself when I think how I should have planted Clematis! The Ranch sounds great! Maybe I will try it one day..I hope. I want to make some broccoli soup..so I am going to look up your recipe..if you have one. I have a beautiful bag of fresh top grade broccoli ..I want to use it and soon. Trucker friend brought it to us.
