Magic Dairy Dressing Dip:
Place all ingredients in a food processor or blender and process until smooth, 1-2 minutes. Store refrigerated in a tightly closed container for up to one week. Note: Substitute plain low-fat yogurt if preferred.
This adaptable dairy dressing is a breeze to make and very versatile. While delicious by itself, what makes it truly "magic" is the ease with which it can be transformed with the addition of a few of your favorite ingredients such as fresh herbs, seasonings and salsa. You can even go sweet by mixing in chocolate nut crème or fresh fruit and some honey. Serve it as a dip in the lunch pail for fruits and veggies or use it as a sauce or dressing on meat and fish. Mix it up even more as a delicious sandwich spread or creamy marinade for meat.
Ninety-nine percent of California dairy farms are family-owned. California produces more fluid milk, butter, ice cream and nonfat dry milk than any other state. The state is the second-largest producer of cheese, which is available nationally under the Real California Cheese seal. Dairy products made with California milk can be identified by the Real California Milk seal, which certifies that the products are made exclusively with milk produced on California dairy farms.
