Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I was a little suspicious at first, because it didn't have buttermilk in it, but after making it, it was really good, and easy to make. But, if you make it, maybe don't add too much of the ranch seasoning packet.

i love THIS RECIPE.. I have been using the BUTTERMILK hidden valley ranch dip packet with sour cream and mayo. THIS IS SO MUCH EASIER AND TASTES AWESOME.
