My sour cream and basil dressing has fancy bistro flavor. We serve it with salad; it’s also a tasty addition to baked potatoes, bread salads and veggies. —Deborah Comeaux, Pocomoke City, Maryland

"We made it this summer on vacation and really enjoyed it. Used minced garlic, reduced-fat mayonnaise and reduced-fat sour cream and fresh lemon juice. Served it with cooked chicken tortellini, fresh mozzarella marinated with olive oil, herbs & spices, cherry tomatoes, and fresh basil. Highly recommend!"

"Really knew we would love this dressing. It had all our favorite flavor ingredients. Followed the recipe exactly. Unfortunately it was a fail and ended up up throwing it away. We seldom throw food away because I can usually add something to make it salvageable. Not this time. Sorry."
