Ranch Dressing

Recorded December 8, 2015. This recipe represents the simple one first used at a dude ranch outside Santa Barbara, California. Guests loved it. In time, the operators made it available commercially.
1/2 c (125 g) buttermilk
1/2 c (125 g) mayonnaise
1/4 t (2 ml) ground black pepper
1/4 t (2 ml) celery seed
1/4 t (2 ml) salt
1/8 t (1 ml) granulated garlic
1/8 t (1 ml) onion powder
fat pinch of dry thyme
Add the first two ingredients by weight or volume into a clean container with a tight-fitting lid. Add the others, by volume. Mix well. Hold for an hour before using to let flavors mature. Yields one cup. Easily doubled. Store cold.
