Tana's Kitchen Secrets
by Tana Ramsay

Use different herbs from those suggested below to suit your taste, or scallions for a bit of crunch. This dressing works well for salads, as a dipping sauce, or with baked potatoes. As a family, we all have different favorite salad dressings, but this manages to appeal to all of us.
Serves 6-8
Preparation time 5 minutes
Can be made in advance


    • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
    • 1/2 cup sour cream
    • 1/2 cup buttermilk
    • 1 tbsp snipped chives
    • 1 tsp finely chopped parsley leaves
    • 1 tsp finely chopped dill fronds
    • 1 garlic clove, crushed
    • sea salt and black pepper


Simply mix all the ingredients together really well, season to taste with salt and pepper and serve at room temperature.

Buttermilk: The Secret Weapon
It's always worth having a container of tangy, yogurty buttermilk in the refrigerator as it has so many uses. You will find it in most larger supermarkets. As well as giving a flavor boost to my dressing recipe here, it can act as a raising agent in yeast-free baking, such as for Irish soda bread or scones. Its slight acidity also makes it a valuable ingredient in marinades for chicken, where it acts as a tenderizer.
