Green Goddess Dressing
(This recipe is from my friend, Nancy)
Wonderful way to use fresh basil. If you don’t have whole buttermilk, add a little more sour cream.
1 1/2 cups firmly packed fresh basil leaves
1/2 cup whole buttermilk
2 T. apple cider vinegar
1/2 shallot, sliced
1 cup mayonnaise (such as Hellman’s or Duke’s)
1 cup sour cream
Salt and black pepper to taste
Process ingredients in a blender or food processor until smooth. Serve dressing immediately, or cover and chill.
Note: I store this dressing in glass or plastic with a non-metal lid, to prevent the acid from reacting with the metal.
