Houston’s is a wonderful restaurant. If you have never been there everything is made fresh, and it’s made there fresh every day. It is the kind of restaurant you go to when you want to have a really nice meal. It’s not the restaurant you go when you want to have a quick meal. It is a place of celebrations, and when you want to treat someone.

Their salad dressing is heavenly. Houston’s Buttermilk Garlic Salad Dressing tastes amazing, there is a touch of spice to it, and of course just the right amount of garlic. I know that when you try this salad dressing you aren’t going to buy a bottle of salad dressing again.

Why make buttermilk garlic salad dressing at home?

There is a huge benefit of making salad dressing at home. The first benefit is that homemade salad dressing tastes better than salad dressing out of a bottle. It also contains less sodium, preservatives, and if you need a salad dressing to be gluten-free, you can make it that way if needed.

    The printed recipe shows sugar as an ingredient, however, your video did not reflect the same. Which is accurate? Thanks!

    Is mustard powder the same as dry mustard? I would guess so but would like to make sure. I live in Virginia and have never heard or been to Houstons.
