Buttermilk Tarragon Dressing


Tarragon and buttermilk are one combination that simply put, make a match made in heaven. I like using low-fat buttermilk, but by all means you can opt for the full fat! The best thing about this recipe is that you can “doctor” to your desire by adding more “kick” with additional garlic or mustard. Most of all, have fun with it and toss to your hearts content!
