After a little tweaking I have found a solution to the almost overpowering mayo flavor this dressing has the first day or 2. I always double the recipe. I use 3/4 cup mayo & 1/2 cup of buttermilk. I also add another 1/4 cup parmesan cheese after mixing. I leave the other ingredients as stated in the recipe. It makes the perfect dressing!
This is the first time I have ever made my own salad dressing and it is so delicious! Plus super easy. I feel so fancy. I had it on a regular iceberg salad and so delish. Mine has thickened in the fridge being in there a couple days, so I could always just add a little buttermilk or milk to thin it out. It's a keeper!
Just looking at the recipe I thought it would be just ho hum. But when I made it it was anything but so I had to give it the 5 stars. Fresh tasting cheesy lemony and better the next day. I used dried parsley as that is what I had and I thinned it just a little more with buttermilk (the real stuff) as it was just a little too thick for us. Thanks for sharing!
You are forgetting the 3 most important ingredients that give this dressing it's kick: terragon, white wine and anchovies (YES, anchovies!) As far as the amounts, you'll have to play around with it. My BF used to work there and told me the recipe, but I lost the paper it was written on.
The only problem with this recipe is that it makes only one cup. It is so delicious that you should really double, if not triple, it! I put everything in the blender and it was lovely. Make sure you try this
YUM YUM, Love it, and its quick n easy to make
This was a very good base recipe. I felt it needed a little more umph. So I fiddled with it and added a little extra lemon juice; and approximately a tsp each or so of hickory farms sweet hot mustard and worcestershire sauce and few dashes hot sauce, natures seasonings and black pepper. And now I love it even more. I doubt I will ever buy store bought again. And next time will definitely double or triple the recipe. And did I mention how easy it is to throw together? It also tastes better the next day when the flavors have had a chance to meld together.Thank you so much for posting this recipe.
I really wanted to like this, but mine tasted like mayo even after a couple days in the fridge. Fun to give it a try though, just wasn't for us. Thanks.
This tasted better the a couple days after I made it..really good! I love garlic, so I put mine through a garlic press to measure the amount. It was so simple, I will be making this one all the time! Thanks for posting :) (I also used tsp dried parsley instead)
I used the blender, and used my "low pulse setting ... it did thicken as I left it in the fridge for about 2 hours, however it tasted like pure mayonnaise ... not tasty at all
