Creamy Pesto Salad Dressing

Total Time

I needed a salad dressing for an Italian dinner one night, and I wasn't in the mood for a vinaigrette. At our house, anything with pesto is a winner! :) This is a very thick salad dressing (especially if you use regular mayo), so you don't have to get your salad greens scrupulously dry - the excess water will loosen up the dressing.

  1. Whisk to combine. Dress salad! :).

I don't want to give stars. Cause we found that we could only taste the Dijon mustard. And then I noticed that my jar was an extra strong Dijon mustard. That's why. I'll try it again, with regular Dijon but maybe just 1 tbs in case. Thanks CraftScrout. Made for Photo tag.
