Adults and kids alike love the tanginess of this ranch-style dip. By using nonfat buttermilk and low-fat mayonnaise for the creamy base we’ve cut the fat substantially and eliminated the saturated fat. It only takes 15 minutes to make and keeps for 3 days so it’s perfect for a healthy snack in a pinch.
