Light Ranch

I recently bought some powdered buttermilk. You keep it in the cabinet, and whenever you need buttermilk, you just add the amount of water noted, and voila! No more buying huge jugs of it for one recipe and then the rest of it goes bad in the fridge. This dressing tasted really good. My only complaint is that it’s very watery, but other than that, it was great. The one thing that made this dressing? The fresh dill.
