Are you tired of store bought salad dressing? Do you want something nice and fresh, and pretty easy to make so you can have a delicious homemade dressing on your crisp salad? Why not give this Creamy Italian Parmesan Dressing recipe a try?
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup Greek yogurt
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1/3 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano, minced
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
Small handful fresh Italian parsley (appx. 4-5 sprigs)
Small handful fresh fresh basil (appx. 3 large leaves)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
Milk, if needed
*makes appx. one cup
Add all of the ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth.
If the mixture is too thick, taste it first and add either additional vinegar or milk to thin it out, one tablespoon at a time. I prefer a more vinegary dressing, so I usually opt for vinegar.
Taste it again and adjust the seasoning to your liking before serving.
This dressing is best when allowed to sit for 30 minutes to an hour in the refrigerator. This allows the flavors to blend and the dressing to thicken up a bit.
You can easily make this dressing without a blender. Just finely chop the herbs and use a whisk to mix it up.
You can also change the herbs up to suit your tastes. Tarragon or dill would be delicious in this.
The recipe can be easily doubled or tripled!
