I don’t know about you but I am just not ready for fall yet. I love everything about summer: pool time, cookouts, fireflies, drippy ice cream cones, icy cold beverages you get the idea! I think one of my main loves is fresh fruits and veggies! I find it hard to make really good meals in the middle of winter because the fruits and veggies are just not at their peak. I also love I mean love a good salad I could eat them everyday, no joke! Over the weekend I made some herb compound butter with the leftover herbs I decided to make this dressing. Don’t get me wrong I make homemade dressing all the time but I have always made vinaigrette. This was my first time to make a creamy dressing. Let me tell you it is amazing!! It made our salad come alive with so much flavor! Before summer is over you must give this a try I promise you won’t be buying the bottled stuff! Enjoy!
1/2 cups mayonnaise
3/4 cups sour cream
1 medium handful chives, torn in half
1 medium handful fresh flat-leaf parsley
2 cloves garlic, roughly chopped
1 tbsp. olive oil
2 tbsp. lemon juice
2/3 to 1 cup buttermilk
Salt and Pepper to taste
To a blender add the mayonnaise, sour cream, chives, parsley, garlic, olive oil, lemon juice and salt and pepper. Blend until well combined. Add the buttermilk starting with 2/3 cup and blend adding additional buttermilk to desired consistency – I used 1 cup. Store the dressing in the refrigerator.
