Homemade Ranch Dressing

I had a craving for buffalo chicken dip, all the ingredients of which I had on hand except for ranch dressing. Reading countless labels at Walmart (ugh.) I found that all of them contained MSG, written as monosodium glutamate. MSG and I don't get along, and I especially wouldn't eat it with a babe inside.
Here's the recipe (so easy!) that I made in a few minutes this evening:

1/2 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup mayo
3 tbsp chopped chives
3 tbsp parsley
1/2 tsp garlic salt (some of these have monosodium glutamate too, so check)
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp black pepper

Mix it all together -tada!

This recipe comes from a mashed potato recipe off of epicurious.com, one of my favorite go-to's for delicious recipes. Hope you enjoy it!

Thank you for posting this! I was just saying that I needed to make some homemade ranch dressing. If I eat MSG, my body seems to have a bad reaction so I've been trying to avoid it. It will be nice to have a good recipe without the MSG. Thanks again!
