I love The Old Spaghetti Factory Pesto Salad Dressing. On New Years we decided to try out the recipe and make it ourselves. It was absolutely wonderful and I will be making it again. I also think the mix could be used on my Pizza Salad instead of the Ranch Mix to make a wonderful Pesto Pizza Salad.
Pesto Dressing Mix
2 tablespoons grated Romano Cheese (you can also use Parmesan)
2 tablespoons dried basil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 clove garlic minced
1/4 teaspoon paprika
Mix all ingredients together.
To Make Salad Dressing
Mix 1/2 cup milk with 1 tablespoon vinegar. Let sit for 10 min.
Or you can use 1/2 cup buttermilk instead of the milk and vinegar.
Whisk 1 cup mayonnaise with the milk mixture or the buttermilk until smooth.
Mix the Pesto mix with the mayonnaise mixture.
Store in refrigerator in an airtight container for up to a week.
