When I was in college ranch dressing was a staple. On vegetables, yes. With pizza always.
Lettuce was the vehicle to get more ranch dressing in my life. Because, I was in college and ranch served as a therapy of sorts.
Oh college days…you were good to me.
Then on Pinterest a few summers ago I see these homemade ranch dressing recipes using dried herbs and YES! I was so in. Were you in too?
But now it’s summer and I have a love affair with my herb garden. It cheats on my often by DYING when I do not use the herbs quick enough. Use me or lose me at its finest.
Currently I feel it is important as a FOOD BLOGGER to state that my herb garden is dead. DEAD! This is due to my consistent travel. Beau tried to keep them alive but he travels also so…death.
This is becoming a sad post very quickly.
Please pay all respects to my herbs in the comments of this post. Thank you.
Ok, moving on. I wanted to use my fresh herbs in a fresh herb dressing and that is what I did!
Side note, whenever I write out “summertime” the song Summertime Sadness (the remix of course) starts playing in my head. Is it just me? …
Ok, so let’s do this!
Homemade Fresh Herb Dressing
I use fresh scallions, basil and dill.
Oh my gosh, do not even get me started on basil…not summertime sadness.
It all comes together in a food processor. Because it’s summertime and this is quick and easy so you can go outside and play. Or, go outside and TEND TO YOUR GARDEN.
I put it in a mason jar and store it in the refrigerator or up to one week. (But it is usually gone by then.)
I just happened to make a wedge salad the day I whipped up this dressing.
Crumbled bacon. Blue cheese. Fresh veggies. And a healthy drizzling of the homemade fresh herb dressing.
