Fried Chicken? You guessed it; we use buttermilk to brine the chicken to make it juicy and delicious. Mayonnaise? We use that creation in almost anything right down to our Chocolate-Mayonnaise Cakes. It’s a just Southern thing Y’all, and we live for bold, creamy flavors in our recipes.

If you’re looking for a diet salad dressing, you’re looking at the wrong recipe. Now you can make a few adaptions to the method to make it more diet-friendly such as using fat-free buttermilk, light mayonnaise, or yogurt, and Splenda Sweetener instead of sugar, but I can promise you it will not even remotely taste the same.

      Thank you, Shanika, I agree–I remember a diet I was on and you could only dip your fork in the dressing then pick up the salad with the fork–I decided after a few days–*Fork That!* lol I need my dang dressing!

      Thank you, tarragon has such a great flavor. I use Mexican tarragon here in Florida as French tarragon can’t handle our heat index.

    I do love buttermilk fried chicken, but never use it in my salad dressings… I definitely have changed that since this recipe! So creamy and I love the tang 🙂
