Move over bottled dressing, make room for this easy homemade recipe that’s so super-flavorful 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. If you have fresh herbs on hand, substitute 1 tablespoon fresh herbs for each teaspoon of dried herbs.
