Ranch Can Be Transcendent...

A good version is going to contain two of the great gifts of food to man:Mayonnaise and Butttermilk.I've written mash notes to mayo over the years.It's just so good that English doesn't really do it justice.I need to learn some more languages,maybe one day I'll come across some obscure dialect who's innate poetry can give mayonnaise the sweet justice it deserves.

Buttermilk is also innately delicious.If you can get your hands on some from an actual farmer you will have one of the great treasures of modern food.The kind you buy at Fiesta or Sun Harvest is good for cooking but lacks in drinkability .

The third essential ingredient in a good Ranch is Green Onions.The "Giant" ones are the best and they go good in anything but when combined with Mayo and Buttermilk they provide a beautiful backdrop to the richness of the dairy.

So tell me what your favorite source for Ranch Dressing is please.If you can think of something to dunk in it,preferably something that has been Deep Fat Fried then all the better.
