Recipe: Healthy Ranch Dip

recipe-cardrecipe-card

The perfect dip and dressing made a little healthier.

I want to make something that I could dip Buffalo Strips in during the football games so here you go, but what are Bafflo strips without ranch dip. The best part is that this dip goes great with Buffalo or vegetables. If you want it as a dip, make it thick. If you want it as a dressing, add some additional buttermilk to make it thin.
