Besides using on salads, it's yummy as a dip for tortilla chips. I also love it for dipping celery.



Place tomatillo, cilantro, and jalapeno in blender. Blend until smooth and set aside.

Combine the sour cream and ranch dressing mix in a medium bowl. Stir in about 1/2 of the green sauce and then taste (Just in case this is your heat level limit). Add more green sauce until you reach your desired heat level ;-)

I know many stores carry this but there just isn't anything better than homemade with no preservatives. I love the spicy flavor even as a dipping sauce. :-)



Place ingredients in a cruet or jar, close lid, shake well and top or dip your favorite foods.

These are approximate measurements; the recipe can be tweaked to your own taste. It can also be used as the base to make chip/vegetable dip by adding it to sour cream.


  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk, or 1/2 Tbsp. lemon juice, plus milk or soy milk to make 1/2 cup (I've had success using less)
  • 1/2 tsp. dried parsley flakes
  • 1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/8 tsp. garlic powder or granules
  • 1/8 tsp. onion powder
  • pinch dried thyme
  • pinch dried oregano
  • pinch paprika


Combine all ingredients in a jar, cover, and shake well. Refrigerate for several hours before using.

  • 2 tsp. parsley, minced
  • 1/2 tsp. oregano
  • 1/4 tsp. garlic poweder, or 1/2 to 1 garlic clove, finely minced

For Ranch Dip, use sour cream or yogurt in place of buttermilk.

Heat oven to 400 degrees F. Place butter in 9 by 13 inch baking pan and place in hot oven for 2-4 minutes just to melt butter. Remove and set aside. In shallow bowl beat egg and pepper. On large dinner plate or in zip lock bag combine dry salad dressing mix and crushed cereal...
