This is an easy salad dressing or ranch dip. It does NOT taste like Hidden Valley Ranch, but I really like it. Don't try to eat it right away, or it is very bland. (Sorry to my friends that I made it fresh for and didn't let it sit!) It needs to sit for an hour or so to really taste good, and it is definately stronger the second day.
1 c plain yogurt (I often heap the cup)
1/3 c milk (optional, only for making it runnier)
1 clove garlic
1T or so minced fresh chives
2 tsp red wine vinegar OR juice of 1 lemon
1/2 tsp salt (I used sea salt)
pepper to taste
1 tsp dried dill
1 tsp dried parsely
Mince the garlic and then smash it into the salt to make a paste. Then just mix everything together.
This is really good as a dip or on chicken wraps! I don't add any milk for a dip. Lydia eats it with a spoon. She LOVES it.
