white wine vinegar
monosodium glutamate (MSG)
With a few modifications, I thought this was super. To cut back on the fat, I used low fat whipped cottage cheese in lieu of the sour cream. I added a ton more garlic powder (but that's just me), onion powder, dry mustard and a quarter cup of vinegar. No MSG passes my lips so I happily left that out. So delicious Maureen and thank you!
I made this last night and it was BLAND! I followed the recipe pretty much as written. I didn't have steak sauce so I just added some salt to taste, and I added Grey Poupon mustard instead of mustard seed. I followed other reviewer's suggestions to at least do a full teaspoon of the lemon, oil, and vinegar. I did 1 1/2 cups of sour cream and 1/2 buttermilk to start, for more flavor. And I subbed a clove of fresh crushed garlic for the garlic powder. And it was still totally bland for my tastes.
Only after some more doctoring did I arrive at something yummy. I added more buttermilk, another clove of fresh crushed garlic, and several tablespoons of fresh chopped herbs from my garden (oregano, parsley, thyme, and basil). I also added some dried onion flakes. After all that, the dressing turned out really good. My 2-year old son enjoyed dipping steamed green beans into it. The recipe as it is written, I'd say is a decent dip or salad dressing *base*, but I don't think it has nearly enough flavor to stand on its own as a dressing. Because I had to doctor it up (beyond the recipe) to make it really good, I'm only giving it two stars.
I rated this 4 stars after the following changes:
1 cup (not 2) of sour cream
1 full teaspoon of the vinegar, oil, and lemon juice
2 cloves fresh pressed garlic instead of powder
We used this as both a veggie dip and salad topper.
If you love garlic and love creamy dressings as much as we do, you can't help but love this one.
I just made it and I thought that this dressing is delicious I had to sub the gpowder for reall garlic and mustard seed for dry mustard! It is so good w/ a little salt and pepper.
This is excellent! I had some fresh leeks so I minced up a little and added it. I also added a LOT more garlic and onion. I followed the other reviewer and added 1/4 c. vinegar, WAAAAY to sour!! I had to add a 1/4 t. of brown sugar to neutralize some of the sour, (you don't taste the brown sugar). I would suggest starting out with 1 T. vinegar and go from there. The longer it sets in the frig. the more delicious it gets.
Great flavor! Was a crowd pleaser with my family.
This was a good dressing/dip. I did add some milk to thin it out otherwise it was too thick.
