Chipotle Bacon Ranch Salad Dressing

I love making my own salad dressings. They are healthier, tastier and you can make them just the way you like them. 

You can make it spicier and add more chipotle peppers.  It does get spicier as it sits in the refrigerator though.  Make it vegetarian and nix the bacon if you want. Make it thinner, thicker, however you like it. It makes a great dressing for egg salad or potato salad too. 

Chipotle Bacon Ranch Salad Dressing Recipe

1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup buttermilk
1/4 tsp. dried dill
1/2 tsp. dried parsley
1/2 tsp. dried chives
1/2 tsp. onion powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
Freshly squeezed lemon juice to taste, about 1 - 3 tsp.
1/4 tsp. cumin
1 chipotle pepper
3 strips of bacon

Combine everything in a blender and blend until smooth.  If it's not the right consistency, go ahead and add some more buttermilk but it seemed perfect to me.
