I love homemade dressings and this one is a melange of several different ones I make regularly. It has a creamy base - much like a herbed ranch dressing - with added crumbled feta. You can use this basic recipe for pretty much any combination of herbs, with or without feta. Enjoy!
3/4cupbuttermilk Don't have any buttermilk? Use regular milk and add 1 tsp of vinegar to make it curdle. Voila! Buttermilk substitute.
1/3cupmayonnaisemore or less to get the thickness you want
1/3cupsour cream OR full fat plain greek yogurt (or mix both!)
2Tblseasoned rice wine vinegarOR lime juice + zest
3Tblfresh herbsdill, cilantro, parsley, mint (whatever you've got)
1scallion, very finely slicedoptional
1/4cupcrumbled fetaNo need for pricey feta here, the President crumbled is FINE. Get the herbed kind for more flavour! This is also OPTIONAL.
1tsppasted fresh garlic (3 cloves)OR Indian garlic paste
S/Pto tasteGo a little saltier than you think it should be so it adequately seasons the salad.
Mix everything together in a bowl. Do not over mix the feta, you want the crumbles to be intact (if you are using feta). This makes about 1 3/4 cups or so and will keep for a week or so in the fridge.
This is a really great dressing base. Change it up to suit your tastes! Leave out the feta! Add double the herbs and blend for a Green Goddess dressing. Use lots of lime and cilantro for a Mexican inspired dressing. The sky's the limit!
