Another suggestion is this creamy tomatillo dressing. I could literally drink this stuff.
Ingredients 1 packet TRADITIONAL Hidden Valley Ranch mix (not BUTTERMILK) 1 c. mayonnaise 1 c. buttermilk 2 tomatillos, remove husk, diced 1/2 bunch of fresh cilantro 1 clove garlic juice of 1 lime 1 jalapeno
Directions Mix all ingredients together in the blender.
This is best made the day before, but is amazing if you eat it right away too.
