29 Jun Creamy Basil Dressing
Fresh basil is such a wonderful addition to our CSA shares. I wanted to use this fresh aromatic herb to create a flavorful dressing that could be used on salad, but also in a variety of other ways. This dressing can be used as a sandwich spread, as a topping on baked potatoes, on top of your favorite protein, drizzled on roasted vegetables, or even used to dip bread or raw veggies into.
Creamy Basil Dressing
1 cup basil leaves, loosely packed
1 large scallion
2 garlic scapes
5 oz plain yogurt
½ tsp lemon zest
2 tsp lemon juice
¾ tsp sea salt
¼ tsp black pepper
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 tsp honey (optional)
- Place basil leaves, scallion, and garlic scapes in food processor. Pulse until finely chopped. Scrape sides and pulse again.
- Add remaining ingredients to food processor. Mix for at least two minutes or until all ingredients are chopped and well combined.
- Remove and place in glass container.
- Store in refrigerator for up to a week. Shake well before using.
