Lemony Buttermilk Ranch Dressing

School is back in session!  As with every school year, I make a very strong effort to bring my lunch every day.  Okay, four of the five days.  Maybe three.  Because driving from school to school is a regular part of my day, it is way too easy to pull into a quick serve place and grab lunch.  I have been know to eat Chipotle several times in a week.  Not good for the wallet, or the waistline.

Along with bringing my lunch, I’m also trying to incorporate more vegetables into it.  It doesn’t take much time to break off a couple broccoli florets, slice some zucchini, and throw in a few cherry tomatoes and carrot sticks into a container.  If I’m feeling really motivated, I’ll toss together a salad.  My new favorite dressing is this homemade buttermilk ranch, with lots of fresh lemon zest.  Eating veggies is a lot more fun with this dressing to dip them in.
