i saw this on the tv while using the treadmill in the gym. looks great. i just bought ingredients but realized that the buttermilk salad dressing mix i got is just .4 ounces (it is a major brand, listed as "makes 16 fl oz dressing). can anyone recommend a brand that is 1 ounce dry mix?? or do you think this one will work ok?
