Here is a yummy ranch dressing, using Spanish smoked paprika, and lots of garlic! I first saw this recipe in Better Homes and Gardens, and then a few of my cooking friends were talking about it. When Eating, Etc. made it a few months ago, I was reminded of how much I wanted to make it.
1-2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp coarse sea salt
1 cup buttermilk
1/3 cup mayonnaise (good-quality)
1/3 cup sour cream (I used light)
2 tablespoon fresh Italian parsley, finely chopped
2 tablespoon fresh chives, finely chopped
2 green onions, thinly sliced
2 teaspoon white wine vinegar
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1) Place minced garlic & salt in mortar bowl & mash together with pestle into a paste.
2) In a medium bowl, whisk together garlic paste with remaining ingredients. (For best results, shake everything together in a jar).
3) Toss with your fave salad fixings.
