Stetson Chopped Salad Dressing

I could literally drink this salad dressing. It is not difficult and is so much yummier than any pre-made dressing you come across. PLEASE give it a try! Recipe from CovCom Cooks!

1/2 cup basil pesto**
1 shallot, roughly chopped
1 cup Aioli (see NOTE)
1 cup buttermilk
Fresh lemon to taste
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

Whisk all ingredients together and refrigerate.  The longer it sits, the thicker it will become.
**  You can make your own pesto by blending 8 cups packed basil leaves, 1 cup olive oil, 1/2 cup toasted pine nuts, 2-4 garlic cloves, and 1/2 tsp salt in the food processor until smooth.  At the end, stir in 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese.

NOTE:  For Aioli, combine 1-2 finely minced garlic cloves, 1/3 cup olive oil, and 1/2 cup mayonnaise.  Whisk together and set aside. 

Happy Cooking!
