  • 2/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • 1 clove garlic finely minced
  • 1 tsp dried dill (or 1 tbsp. fresh dill)
  • 1 tsp dried parsley (or 1 tbsp. fresh parsley)
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper


  • In a medium bowl, whisk together all ingredients.
  • You want to make sure you really mince your garlic.
  • I have a garlic press so I used that but if you are chopping it up by hand, get it as finely minced as you can.
  • The fresh garlic adds a ton of flavor to the dressing.
  • Store in a jar or bowl with a lid in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
  • This dressing will thicken up slightly as it sits in the fridge.
  • Also, I think it gets even better tasting after it's been in the refrigerator for at least a day.
  • It really helps the flavors come together.


If you want a thicker dressing, to use more for dipping, try substituting sour cream or plain yogurt for the buttermilk.
