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!
This was an awesome starting point, I used much more basil than called for and added a splash of white wine vinegar. It is a little thin, but didnt want to thicken it up with more mayo. It is very similar to a favorite local restaurants house dressing I have been trying to replicate for a long time. I am going to try this on a pasta salad next, I think it would be wonderful.
A terrific blend of flavors in a very nice summery salad dressing ~ Thanks for sharing the recipe!
Light and refreshing..would be a great dip for something...not sure yet but will keep it handy. I loved the flavor and the fact that I had everything on hand, except the buttermilk, but I used lemon juice in my milk and all was right in the world. I will use this again and again....wonder if dry basil would work for winter?
This is TO DIE FOR!!! My kids are addicted to Hidden Valley Ranch dressing for dipping carrots and celery into, and they have a FIT if I bring home any other brands...They were leary when I whipped this up and asked them to try it, but dontcha know they ate the WHOLE BATCH and then asked me to go to the store to buy more veggies so we could make more of this dip! I also used it on salad, and the flavors were a perfect blend for me! Thumbs up, HeyJude! TY so much for posting! Stacy :)
