Creamy Basil Dressing

This dressing toasts your fresh market (and home garden) bounty - get fresh for dinner! Vegetarian and vegans can easily replace the mayo with a plant or soy based mayo in the recipe.

  • 1 cup mayo
  • 1 small shallot
  • 1 clove of garlic, peeled
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 tbsp. fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • Salt & pepper to taste*
    • *Available from Well Seasoned


  1. In a small food processor or bender, process the shallot and garlic to chop, then add the mayo and lemon juice, process until smooth.
  2. Add the basil and process adding the buttermilk slowly to smooth it all out.
  3. Season with salt & pepper. Pour generously over your favourite salad.
