Yummy Herb Parmesan Dressing
This dressing is really easy to make because you just have to shake, stir, or blend the ingredients together. There is no chopping involved, although you will need to grate the cheese. It is always worth buying a block of parmesan and then grating your own, rather than buying the powdered parmesan which has very little flavor. You really will be able to tell the difference if you use a good quality parmesan. If you use a poor one, you might as well just buy bottled salad dressing. This herb parmesan dressing deserves good parmesan.
The combination of basil, dill, and oregano is lovely with the parmesan, but feel free to change the ingredients. Use whatever herbs you have in the cupboard and substitute fresh herbs if you want. Just make sure they are finely chopped first.
Something else you can do is swap one of the herbs for the same amount of dry mustard. This adds a nice piquancy. The mayonnaise, milk and sour cream give this herb parmesan salad dressing a lovely creamy texture, although you could use reduced fat mayonnaise, skim milk and low-fat sour cream if you want to keep the fat content down while still enjoying the creaminess.
- ⅓ cup mayonnaise
- ½ cup milk
- ¼ cup grated parmesan cheese
- ¼ teaspoon dried oregano
- ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
- ¼ teaspoon dried dill
- ¼ teaspoon dried basil
- ⅓ cup sour cream
- Black pepper, to taste
- Combine all the ingredients in jar.
- Screw the lid on tightly and shake well until blended.
- Alternatively you can stir the ingredients together in a measuring cup or bowl, or use a blender.
This delicious salad dressing is rich and creamy. The parmesan goes really well with the herbs and garlic to make this not only a flavorful dressing but a versatile one as well. Try it with baby spinach, walnuts, strawberry halves and some fresh black pepper ground over the top, or see how nicely it goes with grilled vegetables, especially sweet ones like bell pepper and onion. Alternatively this is a nice dressing to enjoy with torn romaine, especially if you add in some big crunchy croutons – the homemade kind of course!
