Soft Herb Butter

This herb butter recipe stays nice and soft and is easily spreadable on rolls or bread.  It also readily accepts the flavor of fresh herbs from your garden and is quite easy to make.

Incredible Butter
2/3 C oil, light
1 1b margarine (softened)
2/3 C Buttermilk
3 T dried herbs or 6 T fresh herbs,  your choice

Whip the oil, margarine and buttermilk with a heavy-duty mixer until very light and fluffy. Add the herbs. Chill.  This butter remains soft and spreadable.

Thyme, Basil, Parsley, Chives, Onion or Garlic powder are all good choices of herbs to use in this recipe. Mix them together in any combination, or simply use one herb. It's also fun to divide the mixed butter into three portions and then flavor each portion with a different combination of herbs.
