Toni, I'm sorry but this wasn't to our tastes as the dijon and the basil seemed to overpower the salad. That's a great idea though, using the powdered milk to thicken dressing and make it creamy. Made for Potluck Tag, please see my rating system as I rate tougher than most.
This is easy to put together and has a wonderful flavor. I mixed up the dressing about 1 hour before serving, allowing it chill in the refrigerator before serving it over a tossed salad. Thanks for posting.
I had this on a salad with fresh tomatoes, cucumber, celery & feta cheese. It was very good; the flavor is on the sharp side, but it's one I really like. I'm also grateful to learn the trick about the nonfat dry milk. Thanks for sharing.
I made this as directed with the fresh basil. I don't know if the dijon I have just is kickin' or what, but mine was a too intensely mustardy. I added about a tsp of honey, which helped, but it was still had a little too much bite for me. BF and I enjoyed this as Sharon and Minx suggested with crudites (carrots, cuke and red bell peppers). All-in-all, though I throught the flavors were good. I liked the fresh herbs and I thought the balance of the flavors other than mustard were good and I thought the addition of dried milk was a great idea- it gives a great creamy texture without any cream, mayo or sour cream like you find in most other dressings. You're definitely right, though, I think this is not just a dressing for weight conscious people, its good for everyone. I guess just be careful with the mustard and be conscious of how mild (or not!) yours is.
We really liked this one, Toni. I used grainy mustard (as that is what I had) and dried basil. Prepared at midday for use that evening over a mesclun salad. Great flavor, and pretty, too. I agree with Sharon123 that this would also make a nice dipping sauce, for crudites for example. Thanks for posting!
This does have lots of flavor! It seems more like a dip or sauce that would be great with fish! I had this with iceberg lettuce and enjoyed it. Thanks Toni!
