This is my family's favorite buttermilk dip and salad dressing recipe. We put this creamy buttermilk dressing on everything! I'm sure it will be a huge hit in your family, too. And lucky for you, it's super easy to make so you won't mind mixing up batches of it often.

To make this easy buttermilk salad dressing and dip recipe you will need to hit the fridge and pantry. Here is what you need to gather to make this homemade salad dressing: buttermilk, mayonnaise, plain Greek yogurt, green onions or fresh chives, fresh dill, fresh parsley, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, black pepper, Worcestershire sauce and cayenne, for a touch of spice.

Drizzle this salad dressing over lettuce salads, grain salads and pasta salads or use it as a dip for chicken nuggets, fried appetizers, fresh cut-up vegetables, french fries, onion rings or whatever you like to dip. It's also a great spread for sandwiches.
