Creamy Basil Garlic Dressing

I love when I am home making a salad and I get a craving for a new dressing. Instead of my old stand by’s, I start to peruse the fridge for any fresh herbs and other condiments I have lurking.  I then throw them together to see what comes of it. Sometimes I get lucky, other times I don’t, but this dressing came out so delish, I had to share!

It’s creamy, sweet and pungent at the same time. If you don’t want it as garlicky, use less cloves. I love GARLIC, so I went for it!



  • 3 garlic cloves, peeled
  • 1 tablespoon mellow white miso
  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon hemp seeds
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 5 basil leaves
  • Pinch sea salt


Place all ingredients in a blender, and blend until creamy smooth. Use as a salad dressing or a dip.
