This is an awesome dressing with a great bite from raw garlic and some hot paprika. It can also be used as a dip. I even used it on a turkey sandwich instead of mayo - a bit thinner than mayo, but it still worked, and added a ton of flavor. When made with the ingredients listed below, it's 27 calories per tbsp.

2/3 cup sour cream
1 cup light mayonnaise (I used Hellmans)
2 cloves garlic
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoon hot Hungarian paprika
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
1/2 cup buttermilk (I used Organic Valley lowfat)

Place everything in a blender, and process until smooth. Make sure the garlic is completely processed. Refrigerate for a few hours so the flavors come together.

Do you think red pepper flakes for extra kick would fit well in place of paprika?

I'm not sure about that. The paprika adds a bit of spice, but not really a lot of fire. Maybe if you let it sit long enough for the pepper flakes to soften and blend in better. However, if you bite into one of those, it's going to be pretty hot. Then again, some people like that.

I would suggest making the recipe without the red pepper, then adding a bit of it to a small portion of the prepared recipe to see if it works. If it doesn't work, you haven't wasted the entire batch.

I would suggest that you try adding several drops of Chipotle flavor Tabasco to add some kick. I add several drops or more to many of my homemade dressing recipes.
