Reviews for Buttermilk Basil Salad Dressing
"This dressing is very thin. After mixing it, I tasted it and found it to be quite bland. I ended up adding more ingredients to bring out flavor. I will not make it again."
"Excellent dressing, love basil and garlic. This is better than any salad dressing that can be purchased in a store. Stores very well in the fridge. This one's a keeper, will definitely be making again."
"The flavors of this dressing are better after sitting in the fridge 1-2 days. If used the first day, it's too mild, in my opinion. Will definitely make again, as it was easy and I like homemade dressings so much better than store-bought."
