Lemon Basil Buttermilk Dressing

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. 


What (your ingredients):

20 fresh basil leaves

2 teaspoons minced garlic

Zest and juice of 1 lemon

1 ½ tablespoons Dijon mustard

1 cup buttermilk

1 7 oz. container Fage plain Greek yogurt

1/3 cup mayo

½ teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon pepper


How (your directions):

Add all ingredients to a food processor.

Blend on high for 30 seconds.

Store in an airtight container.

Why (the science):  Basil is an excellent source of vitamin K, which promotes healthy blood clotting.
