This rich and creamy buttermilk ranch dip comes together in a quick 20 minutes. Perfect for a lunchbox treat with some dipping vegetables or for a quick party appetizer, you cannot beat the bright flavors of fresh herbs mimicking traditional ranch dressing, but better! Silken tofu thickens the dip and adds volume beautifully. Put a bowl of this dip out on a Saturday with some carrot and celery sticks to let family snack through the lazy afternoon.
