Creamy Cilantro Ranch Dressing

My menu is getting flip flopped around this week.  Serena ended up getting the flu even though we both got vaccinated, and while she's been under the weather, she's cared nothing about eating.  I am making quick stuff for myself and will cook more towards the end of the week, and we'll have leftovers over the weekend. 

Monday I decided to make myself a salad so I could use up some stuff from the fridge (shredded chicken, eggs, tomato, bacon bits, cilantro).  I decided to make a cilantro ranch dressing since the only thing I didn't have was buttermilk.

I loved this dressing and can see myself making it a bunch in the summer when salads are incorporated with almost every meal as a side.

1 envelope Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing
1 cup low-fat mayonnaise
1 cup low-fat buttermilk
1/2 bunch cilantro

Put everything in a blender and puree.  Pour into dressing bottle and refrigerate.
