Herby Buttermilk Dressing. This dressing goes great on my Chicken BLT Salad. It also goes well on a regular field greens salad, or even a salad of sliced tomatoes and cucumbers. Use it as a dip for vegetables, too.

You can substitute Greek yogurt for the mayonnaise. You can use garlic instead of a shallot if you prefer a garlicky flavor.

Herby Buttermilk Dressing

Ingredients:

1 c mayonnaise (can use fat-free, if desired)
1 c lowfat or fat-free buttermilk, well-shaken
1 T freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 t dry mustard
1 t salt
1 T minced shallot
2 T chopped fresh dill
2 T chopped fresh parsley
2 T chopped fresh basil
Couple twists freshly ground black pepper

Method:

Whisk all ingredients together in a non-metallic bowl. Refrigerate up to three days.

Makes about 2 cups of dressing. This is a “taste of summer” dressing that you can enjoy year-round. This dressing should keep up to 7 days in the refrigerator — if it lasts that long.

Variations: Use your favorite fresh herb combinations depending on what is in season. Substitute Greek yogurt for the mayonnaise. Add a minced garlic clove instead of the shallot if you like a garlicky dressing. Add some sour cream or softened cream cheese for a thicker dip-like consistency.
