Creamy Pesto Dressing – Gluten-Free

12 Apr

This recipe couldn’t be easier.  Most people who are familiar with the Old Spaghetti Factory (which offers gluten-free options) know that they serve up a creamy pesto salad dressing. I’m generally a fan, but everything is better if you can tweak the ingredients to your liking. This recipe was an experiment and it turned out perfectly. Lucky for me, my mom made the pesto and brought it over, but you can used store-bought pesto as well.

1 c sour cream

1 c mayo (you can make your own or use store-bought)

4 Tbl grated Parmesan cheese

1/2 c pesto (made or store-bought)

1/2 c milk

Black pepper to taste

In a bowl combine sour cream, mayo, pesto, and Parmesan. You don’t need the milk just yet. Taste it. I added plenty of black pepper, some extra garlic salt, and good amount of extra Parmesan. Add the milk slowly to reach your desired consistency. If I were making this into a dip I’d leave the milk out completely.

This recipe was great on our B.L.T. salad we had over the weekend!
