Move over bottled dressing, make room for this easy homemade recipe that’s so super-flavourful you’ll want to use it in a variety of ways. It’s great tossed with greens but would also make a terrific dip to serve with raw veggies. Consider also using it as the creamy base for chicken or tuna salad. It will keep in the refrigerate for up to 5 days so double it to keep in on hand during the week. We used dried herbs in this recipe for convenience however, fresh herbs are wonderful, too.

2% reduced fat milk

If you have fresh herbs on hand, substitute 1 tablespoon fresh herbs for each teaspoon of dried herbs.
