Dressing: Barefoot Contessa's Buttermilk Ranch

My mom made this dressing the other day out of Ina Garten's new cookbook: Barefoot Contessas How Easy is That.

It was so good I was seriously eating it by the spoonful. I wanted to share it because it is so amazingly good but I also wanted to make sure that I am not infringing on any copyrights by posting it here. I've read up on it and think it is ok if I list the ingredients and basic instructions. I would highly recommend buying this book though. I was treated to another Barefoot Contessa dish this week that was also divine. Ina Garten is extremely gifted and I am inspired to make more tasty meals at home after my two Barefoot Contessa meals this week!
