This is very healthful and versatile-good to have on hand for a quick dip or dressing. Could use on baked potato, or with the addition of vinegar and sugar could go on slaw. Take the mayo and buttermilk proportions as suggestions, use more or less of either or use yogurt. Quick, convenient, tastes good.
