I haven’t purchased bottled salad dressing for years – I love making my own! It is super easy, whether you just want a simple oil and vinegar based dressing or something more elaborate (I order the salad dressing mixes from Penzeys).
But, my new most favorite salad dressing is even easier to make! It takes only two ingredients, and you don’t have to wait for the flavors to meld to use it. I found it on the Bon Appetit website, and since I kept going back to it I decided to share it with my friends.
The two ingredients are sour cream and pickled pepperoncini – or whatever pickled vegetable you have on hand. I have used jalapeños and banana peppers, and it has turned out delicious.
The recipe – take a plop (about 1/4 cup) sour cream, 2 tablespoons of the brine from the pickled vegetables, and 1 tablespoon chopped pickled veggie. Mix together. Serve. That’s all. Voila!
I think it is a great substitute for Ranch Dressing, and you could also serve it as a dip with spicy chicken wings. Thank you Bon Appetit!
