Good, use name brand, and is good bmilk ranch dres, Member ldrancer

I made this a couple times. everybody likes it. it stores for about 20 days in the fridge covered, past buttermilk expiration date. i used, and i don't know if this part in () matters, (extra virgin olive oil) helmann's mayonaisse. and it was good ranch dressing. and just regular buttermilk i got at the store. it's a little weaker, but your using good stuff, than the store stuff. it leaves you without the hyped up, hazy mind feeling, compared to the store bought stuff i was getting. or trying. so you have to use a little more dressing, but don't overdo it. it tastes good. i was making some more, and the mayonaisse was costing me the most, and i bought some cheap mayonaisse, and the dressing was too runny. so get some good mayonaisse, i bought, that kind, and i'm not for sure if extra virgin olive oil mayonaisse, is what you need. if you have regular helmanns, you can try it. kraft, should work too. if it's runny, then it's the olive oil in it, but i'm not for sure. i don't think so, i think it's the thicker version of the mayonaisse, that helmann's mayonaisse, is. the runny stuff was too runny to eat. not thick ranch dressing.
