There is actually a mistake in the recipe, the coarse salt at the end isnt supposed to be there. Check it out in the book.
Loved the flavors but agree with the other reviews. Was more like a salad dressing and too salty. I mixed half with plain sour cream to use as the dip and used the rest as dressing all week! Next time will definitely add the buttermilk at the end a little at a time.
This does make a very thin dip. If I make it again, I'll add the buttermilk at the end so I can control how thin it is.
Tasty, but add the salt little by little, and maybe less buttermilk -- mine came out soupy.
