I love growing fresh herbs so am always on the lookout for interesting ways to use them. This ranch from Sanford D'Amato of the Milwaukee culinary scene makes good use of my herb garden!
This recipie came from Milwaukee Journal Sentinel column by Sanford D'Amato. He recommends to serve this with bibb lettuce and radishes.

2 tablespoons sour cream
1/2 cup + 1 tablespoon buttermilk
1 1/4 tablespoons lemon juice

Refrigerate until ready to use. You will have some dressing left over.
is the smallest kitchen ever. We used to watch those decorating shows that said they were doing small kitchens and then could see that 4 of my kitchens would fit in their "small kitchens".
