Green Goddess Dressing

i have been posting a ridiculous amount of cupcakes and sweets it seems. i do actually eat other food, promise. i have been trying to do some more baking in an attempt to improve my baking skills. plus, a new client of mine has requested cupcakes every week.
but, i think it's time to post a somewhat more balanced recipe. when i returned from a bachelorette weekend, i was craving some veggies so i threw together a salad. it was quite tasty because i had some peppery arugula which i happen to love. anyway, long story short, i finally made ina garten's green goddess salad dressing for my salad.
i have been meaning to try it for some time now mainly because i seem to usually have the ingredients in my fridge. i changed a couple of things to make it a little healthier (1/2 the amount of mayo, used olive oil mayo, and used greek yogurt instead of sour cream).
 so, enjoy this recipe, there are more cupcakes to come:)

Green Goddess Dressing
(adapted from ina garten)

1/4 cup olive oil mayonnaise
1/2 cup chopped scallions (white and green parts)
1 cup fresh basil
1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
2 large cloves garlic
1 tsp worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp ground pepper
1/2 cup greek yogurt
1.4 cup water (optional, if needed)

blend all ingredients (except water) together in a blender until smooth. add water to reach desired consistency.

  1. I have a hard time finding dressings that I like - besides original cesar dressings that have 1000000 calories. Thanks for the inspiration to try homemade!
