Creamy Herb and Lemon Dressing

This creamy salad dressing made with fresh herbs and lemon really livens up a simple tossed salad. It's not only a nice break from standard vinaigrettes it's versatile too. Try it on sandwich wraps, as a dressing for pasta salad, or a dip for raw veggies.

Saw this and thought it sounded great. Had to tweek it a bit as I'm on Nutrisystem. I didn't have buttermilk or fresh lemon. Or fresh herbs so I used lemon juice, skim milk and ff sour cream and dried herbs. And its delicious. Thank u for another salad dressing idea.
