This is really just a lighter version of a recipe I found from the beloved Ina Garten.
She makes the best classics and I often find myself turning to her for some kitchen inspiration.
This dressing is great on salads but it’s also delish as a spread for a turkey sammie, tossed with some leftover chicken for a little chicken salad, or simply used as a dip!
It’s a keeper. Promise.
