mom's ranch dressing

When your cookbook opens itself to the same page every time, you know it's a good recipe. My mom revised Simply Vegetarian in 1989, and this recipe comes from her book. This quick Ranch Dressing is delicious. Follow the recipe for dressing salads, or cut the buttermilk a bit for thicker dip.
1/2 c mayonnaise
1/2 c sour cream
1 c buttermilk
1 T chopped chives or scallions
1 T parsley
1/4 t cumin power
1/4 t garlic powder
1/4 t onion powder
pinch cayenne
generous pinch each salt and pepper

Blend all ingredients in the blender. I suggest making this in advance to allow the flavors to develop. Keeps for days in the fridge.
