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.

    Nothing better than your own salad dressing and this one is amazing tasting! I Love how the buttermilk gives a wonderful creaminess, and the tarragon added an uplifting flavor.

    A great dressing that we love in this house! I sometimes make it with other herbs, such as basil, since tarragon is hard to find. It’s delicious either way!

    Up until I tried this recipe, I had only been using buttermilk for scones and pancakes. I loved the taste and will be making a double batch next time.
