Creamy Herb & Olive Oil Dressing

creamy_olive_oil_and_herb_dressingServing a fresh garden salad with this Creamy Olive Oil and Herb Dressing has become a tradition for the Culinary Getaway Welcome Dinners because so many guests love it. The addition of fresh herbs is what makes this dressing delicious, and although it contains sour cream or buttermilk, the dairy does not overwhelm the recipe—keeping the taste of your salad light and refreshing. Of course, we recommend using jovial Reserve Blend Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil because it has the perfect balance of flavor and fruitiness. What’s even better is that by purchasing our olive oil, you are helping to save 400-year-old plus olive trees of ancient origin. Packaged salad dressings are what makes a good salad less healthy, so enjoy a freshly made dressing that everyone at your dinner table will love.

    A question; in making your Creamy Herb & Olive Oil Dressing, can you suggest a non-dairy replacement for the sour cream and/or buttermilk?
