|1 pkg.||Foothill Farms Ranch Salad Dressing Mix (regular-V400 or no MSG-V402)|

In large bowl add Ranch Dressing packet (3.2 oz) to buttermilk. Mix well with wire whisk or electric mixer at low speed.
Add mayonnaise and continue mixing at low speed about 2 minutes until smooth.
Blend cilantro and lime juice in a food processor until pureed. This will give the dressing a light green color. Add to ranch and mix at low speed until combined.
Refrigerate 3-4 hours so dressing will thicken. Stir before using. Store in refrigerator.
NOTE: This dressing can be made "light" or "fat free" by substituting 3 qts. buttermilk and 1 qt. light or fat free mayonnaise.
