Not gonna lie…this salad dressing is A-MAZ-ING. Once again, I’m sharing one of my sister Angie’s recipes. What can I say? The girl can cook. This recipe is for pesto salad dressing, and it’s a copycat recipe of Old Spaghetti Factory’s Creamy Pesto Dressing. I think this recipe actually is better than the original!
This pesto salad dressing is simple to make, can be made far in advance, and will stay good in the fridge for more than a week. Not that you’ll have any of this pesto salad dressing left, but if you did, it would keep.
Pesto Salad Dressing
(Copycat Recipe for Old Spaghetti Factory’s Creamy Pesto Dressing)
- 3/4 cup olive oil
- 1 cup mayonnaise
- 3/4 cup buttermilk
- 4 tablespoons grated Romano cheese
- 2 tablespoons crushed dried basil
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 clove garlic, minced
- Whisk together oil and mayonnaise. Add buttermilk, cheese, basil, salt & garlic. Mix thoroughly. Cover and let flavors combine overnight in refrigerator.
Almost too easy to make right?! And this pesto salad dressing can be served with more than just a salad. Use it as a sandwich spread (I’ve got some more yummy sandwich spreads here). Use it as a dip for chips or nuggets. Mix it in to chicken or egg salad in place of the mayo. Spread it on a hamburger bun. It’s super versatile and it’s so good that you’ll want to eat it with everything!
