Cafe Rio's Creamy Tomatillo Salad Dressing

This was in a ward cookbook of ours, and I feel OBLIGATED to pass it on to anyone that loves Cafe Rio, especially those of us who are now very far away from the blessed restaurant.

Place the following in a blender:
3 fresh tomatillos, cut into quarters
Juice of 1/2 lime
1/2 cup buttermilk (or make with dry buttermilk mix--did you know this stuff exists?? I recently found it and was very excited)
1 cup fresh cilantro (about one bunch) Don't worry about using the stems, it doesn't matter.
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup sour cream
5 stalks (1/2 bunch) of green onions with ends
2 cloves crushed garlic
1/2 to 3/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. crushed cayenne pepper
4 tsp. sugar or other sweetener
1 package of dry Ranch Buttermilk Dressing Mix

Combine well in blender and refrigerate one hour.

I have looked for the dry buttermilk mix with no luck... (at Wal-mart, which I am guessing is not where YOU found it.) Where did you buy it?
