Pan roasting the spices and then freshly grinding them accentuates the unique and smoky flavor of this twist on a classic ranch.

Ingredients





1/2 cup mayonnaise

1/3 cup Greek yogurt

1 cup buttermilk


4 tsp. lemon juice

½ tsp. salt

Savory Spice ingredients in this recipe

Directions

Step 1: Toast spices

In a small skillet over medium heat, dry roast Whiskey Barrel Smoked Black Pepper, Minced Garlic, Coriander Seeds, and Yellow Mustard Seeds until just aromatic or the seeds start to pop. This will take 1 to 3 min.; stir constantly. Immediately transfer to a small bowl to stop the cooking and avoid burning. Transfer roasted spices to a spice or coffee grinder and grind into a coarse powder.

Step 2: Assemble

Place ground spices in a medium bowl. Add the mayonnaise and yogurt and stir to incorporate the spices thoroughly. Stir in the remaining ingredients until smooth. Chill before serving.
