Green Goddess Ranch Salad Dressing

A creamy homemade salad dressing, free of commercial stabilizers, is another boon for salad makers. The anchovy in this one is undetectable but adds a salty, briny flavor; you can substitute salt, if desired.From the book "Mad Hungry," by Lucinda Scala Quinn (Artisan Books).

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh chives and/or scallions
  • 2 teaspoons anchovy paste, or 1 teaspoon coarse salt

  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 small garlic clove, smashed and minced
  • Buttermilk or milk (optional)

Directions

  1. In a large bowl or blender, whisk or blend all the ingredients except the buttermilk. Add just enough buttermilk to thin to the desired consistency, if needed.
