I was looking for a new salad dressing recipe. A creamy one. Something delicious.
And here it is!
1/4 cup buttermilk
1/4 cup light mayonnaise (I actually did use the light mayo. Even though I think it's evil)
1/4 cup low fat sour cream (ditto on the sour cream)
2 tbsp water
1 tbsp minced shallot or red onion
1 tbsp fresh cilantro (I did NOT use this. Yuck!)
1 tbsp fresh lemon juice (I didn't have any lemons. So lime juice it was!)
2 tsp minced fresh dill (um, again, no fresh dill. Dried went in.)
1/2 tsp garlic powder (would you believe I only had fresh garlic. 1 clove, pressed.)
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
Pinch cayenne pepper
Whisk all the ingredients together (I used a measuring cup) until smooth.
And guess who ate it????
I know. Ridiculous!!!!!
It turned out well. Despite my substitutions. The fresh dill would have made it better but in a pinch the dried stuff was good.
Only 30 calories for 2 tablespoons.
Yes, that would be 1/2 the calories for typical oil and vinegar dressings.
Like I said, enjoy!
