2 Tbsp. yogurt

1 clove garlic, finely minced

1 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar

2 Tbsp. canola oil

¾ tsp. Martha’s Vineyard kelp flakes

Salt and pepper

2 Tbsp. fresh chives, minced

In a bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, mayonnaise, yogurt, garlic, and vinegar. Whisk in the oil until creamy. Season generously with salt, lots of pepper, and chives.
