When I was thinking about salad week, I thought it would be yummy to have some kind of creamy pesto dressing to top a Italian style salad. This is the recipe I came up with. I placed it on a salad that included Italian blend salad mix, diced mozzarella, canned artichoke hearts, strips of salami, olives, tomatoes, and peppers. It was delish! If you love pesto, you will love this creamy dressing.
- 1 cup mayonnaise
- 1½ cup buttermilk
- 2 Tbsp prepared pesto
- 4 cloves of garlic
- ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
- In a bowl, whisk together all of the above ingredients.
- Place in the refrigerator and allow to sit for at least one hour for flavors to develop.
- Serve over salad.
