First off, let me tell you what you don’t need. You don’t need a buttermilk dressing mix or packet. No no, you probably have all of the ingredients in your pantry or fridge right now.

A Substitute for Buttermilk:

If you don’t have any buttermilk on hand, don’t worry! You can actually make this homemade too. All you need is milk and vinegar. Simply combine just under 1 cup of milk with 1 tablespoon vinegar and allow to set for 5 minutes. This will curdle the milk somewhat and voila! Buttermilk.
