Basil Green Goddess Salad Dressing

Blenderbabes's picture
We made the popular basil green goddess dressing lighter by substituting some of the ingredients, and it's still FRESH and DELICIOUS. It's especially good atop butter lettuce with fresh tomatoes, cucumbers, and other veggies. This yummy dressing is also great as a dip, that's a healthier alternative to rich ranch dressings.

  Light mayonnaise 1 Cup (16 tbs)

  Garlic 2 Clove (10 gm)
