Creamy Basil Dressing or Dip!
10 mins (prep 10)

The thin version of this recipe makes a great salad dressing. When thickened after refrigeration it makes a good vegetable dip, topping for a baked potato, or mayonnaise replacement for sandwiches. Can be made vegan by using tofu instead of yogurt. This recipe tastes best after marinating in the refrigerator for 24 hours (not in the cooking time). It should last about 7 days in the refrigerator and you may need to thin this dressing before serving if it is too thick. From "Choices - Quick & Healthy Cooking" cookbook.
