    Hey Jude's Note:

    This is tangy and tastes great on simple green salads. You could also use it as a dip. Makes great use of fresh garden basil. Adapated from Gourmet. Chill time is cook time.

      Made with fresh basil from my garden and fresh garlic, this was amazing over a simple green salad with homegrown summer tomatoes from the farmers market. I would make this as needed, unlike most salad dressings, I think this one was best the same day. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

      I have just started to grow a small pot of basil and I made this to use with a fresh spinach salad. It was delightful, thanks for posting

      The flavor is excellent, even though I couldn't wait for it to chill overnight, and even though I used milk & lemon instead of buttermilk...it was a little thin though(probably because I didn't let it set) so next time, if I plan on using it right away, I might omit a little milk and add either yoghurt or sour cream. Thanks so much for the great dressing, its just what I needed for my four basil plant harvest overload! One can only eat SO much pesto!
