Tried marvingray's smaller version. Too bland for my taste: I double the spices. I have fresh parsley in my garden, so of course I use that. It comes out rather thick so I thin a bit with buttermilk. Careful with the saltâ€”it's easy to add too much.

This recipe is easy, tastes great, and is much better for you than that bottled stuff. But try this cut down version, the original makes way too much:
1 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 tablespoon dry parsley flakes
1/4 teaspoon white pepper
1/2 tablespoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
Salt to taste

This dressing is so good, it's the only one my husband wants. We had to make a special trip to the store to get everything needed. We love it! We did not add the MSG.

Tastes great, BUT THERE IS WAY TOO MUCH SALT! I was making this for a party and had to make another batch without salt to cover up the flavor. I suggest leaving the recipe the same, EXCEPT omit the table salt and MSG (bad for you) and change the onion salt to 2 tsp. (not Tbsp.) for the 2 quart recipe. (Buttermilk and sometimes mayo already have salt in them). After doing this you will have a great tasting dressing/dip that will last for weeks.

Hidden Valley seems to have changed something in the powder mix as the dressing turns very thin after a day or two. I will be very happy if this one works.

This dressing rocks! I used fat free mayo and fat free buttermilk and made it in the food processor. It tastes just like Hidden Valley ranch!

Love This!! It is better than the original. I did not add MSG either, it doens't need it. I also cut the recipe in half. My kids love it with carrots.

Made this recipe using Miracle Whip. The tast is great possibly even superior to the product it is imitating.
