creamy paleo basil-ranch dressing
a long while back, my friend shared her fabulous French balsamic dressing recipe with me and my hubby and we've been hooked on it ever since.
thankfully, it's both paleo and whole 30 compliant.
still, as they say, "man shall not live by vinaigrette alone"....
they do say that, right?
of course they do.
i've been craving a bit of creamy goodness for my salad,
and decided i'd try my hand at a paleo/W30 ranch-style dressing.
my back-porch basil plant was in need of trimming back,
so this ended up being a kill-two-birds-with-one-stone sort of dressing.
❧creamy paleo basil-ranch dressing❧
1 cup homemade mayo (I always use this recipe)
3/4 cup basil leaves, loosely packed (rinsed and patted dry)
1½ teaspoons dried parsley
1½ teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
¾ teaspoon garlic powder
¾ teaspoon onion powder
½ teaspoon salt (or to taste)
¼ teaspoon thyme
⅓ - ½ cup coconut milk
Put all ingredients in blender, except coconut milk. Liquefy, adding coconut milk slowly, until desired consistency is reached. Best served chilled. Makes approximately one pint.
So far I've eaten it on cucumber slices, pretzel twists (only a few--and no, not W30 compliant), and plantain chips (yes, W30 compliant, from Trader Joe's). It's yummmmmy.
I do believe we'll have it on our dinner salads tonight.
Try it! I really think you'll like it!
