Dill Ranch Dressing

I’m a big fan of making salad dressing in my blender. It has opened up a world of possibilities for me. It’s easy. You only have to wash the blender rather than washing mixing bowls and whisks and whatever all else. I like being able to add fresh herbs, or vegetables, or nuts, or cheese to dressings. After years of serving my family oil and vinegar dressing day and day out – I’m now the blender-salad-dressing Queen and we have something new and interesting every week. Rah!

Dill Ranch Dressing (makes 2 cups)

  • 1 medium shallot, coarsely chopped
  • ½ cup fresh dill
  • ½ cup fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • ½ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 cup canola oil
  • ½ cup buttermilk

Place the shallot, dill and lemon juice at the bottom of your blender. Process until smooth. Gradually add all of the other ingredients (I do this through the small top part of my blender and add the ingredients while the blender is going). You want to continue processing until the mixture is smooth. Keep in the refrigerator until just before you want to use it. It should last 7-10 days in the fridge. Serve over mixed greens or steamed broccoli or over poached salmon.
