Ranch Dip, inspired by the infamous Ranch Salad Dressing !!
Typically Ranch dip is a mix of buttermilk with mayonnaise and a herb mix. I altered this recipe a bit. I reduced the quantity of mayonnaise and added hung curd and buttermilk !! It tastes awesome and is a healthier version of the classic !!
Like I said yesterday Mayonnaise is the mother dip.... add different things and get new dips ;-) !!
Here goes the recipe:
The Ranch Dip
2 tbsp dried parsley
1 1/2 tsp dried dill weed
2 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp onion powder
2 tsp dried onion flakes
1 tsp ground black pepper
1 tsp dried chives
1 tsp salt
For The Dip
1/2 Cup Mayonnaise
1/3 cup Hung curd
1/3 cup Buttermilk
Whisk all ingredients together until blended.
If you want a more finely-ground seasoning mix, you can pulse the mixture in a food processor until it reaches your desired consistency (I did this).
Whisk together the mayonnaise, hung curd and buttermilk. Add salt and pepper and now 1 tbsp of the ranch herb mix. Whisk till well blended together.
Let it chill in the refrigerator for about an hour and serve.
You can store the remaining herb mix in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 months.
Happy Dipping !!
