easy, quick, homemade Ranch dressing.....

This is a dressing I use, if I need something quick......Mind you, It is minus all of the preservatives in Hidden Valley, and store shelve brands. I can't say it taste exactly like "restaurant ranch" but it is pretty darn close, and easy to make. Here it is.....

Homemade Ranch dressing:
1 C Mayo
1 C milk or yogurt
1 Tbsp parsley (dried)
1-2 Tbsp onion powder
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp salt
dash of dillweed
1/8 tsp pepper
grated parmesean cheese
I use a hand held emersion blender to mix it all up. Let it chill for a bit to blend flavors and thicken. All of the spice measurements are guesses here, as I like to just throw it all together. Give it a taste and make sure you like it. Add more or less of anything to suit your palate.
