Lemon Basil Buttermilk Dressing is one of those homemade dressings that is worth making at home! Many creamy dressings contain a lot of mayo, but this one has both mayo and plain Greek yogurt, which adds quite a bit of protein. Lemon zest and lemon juice add a beautiful brightness, while the fresh basil makes this dressing pair perfectly with…well, anything.
