Homemade Creamy Basil Dressing

3 scallions white and green parts finely chopped, about 1/4 cup
1/2 cup finely chopped fresh basil leaves, lightly packed
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 heaping tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon virgin olive oil
1 small garlic clove, finely chopped
1 scant teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 cup mayonnaise (I like Best Foods)
1 cup plain yogurt (wadda think, my homemade of course!)    : )
Be sure to chop the onions, basil and garlic extra fine.  Add all the ingredients together in a bowl and stir. Pour into a jar and refrigerate.  The flavors are best after a day's rest, so if you can, make this a day ahead of serving. It lasts about a week in the refrigerator.
makes about 2 cups

  1. I tend to always dress my salads with vinaigrettes(which I love), but this yummy dressing was a real treat for me. It is full of flavor and easy to make.
