Republicans don't want to talk about the fact that Obama KICKS THEIR ASS on foreign policy.  Just ask Condileeza.

REINVENT THE RECORD Bona Fide Buttermilk Ranch Dressing
Makes 12 servings, 2 Tbsp. each

For the record, homemade dressing isn't difficult to prepare and it's wicked good.

Tossed with crisp hearts of romaine,
bacon, cucumbers and goat cheese
1 cup mayonnaise 
3/4 cup buttermilk
2 Tbsp. olive oil
1 tsp. each: freshly chopped chives, parsley and dill
2 cloves garlic, minced 
1 Tbsp. minced shallot
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper

Whisk ingredients in medium bowl.  

Cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour before serving to allow flavors to blend.

Tip:
If you want to use this as a dip, substitute sour cream for buttermilk and omit olive oil.

You can substitute half the amount of dried chives, parsley and dill.  You can also substitute 1/2 tsp. each garlic powder and onion powder for fresh garlic and shallot.

Great with fried chicken!  Or even SHAKE 'N BAKE!
