Parsley Buttermilk and Parmesan Cheese Salad Dressing

Does your family crave creamy salad dressings over a tangy vinaigrette? If so Parsley Buttermilk and Parmesan Cheese Salad Dressing is calling out to you, so why not give it a try?


Sometimes only a creamy dressing will do! 

Especially when offering salad to children. A vinaigrette is often too strong or "sour" if you were to ask your favorite young diner "How is that, do you like it?" 

Fortunately, Parsley Buttermilk and Parmesan Cheese Salad Dressing is easy to make, tastes great and nutritious fresh parsley (one of my favorite ingredients to work with!) is available year-round. Parsley is an excellent source of antioxidants, along with vitamins A K, and C. 

This salad dressing is also a great dunk for crisp vegetables or to serve alongside steamed artichokes for a first course. 


Parsley Buttermilk and Parmesan Cheese Salad Dressing goes great drizzled over crisp Romaine, with cherry tomatoes, and shredded carrots! And of course, during the time when Romaine is not available, try Tuscan Kale with shredded carrots. The colors are beautiful together! 

Out of buttermilk? No problem, feel free to substitute half yogurt and fresh milk or sour cream and fresh milk. This delicious and beautiful creamy salad dressing is really perfect for those salad days ahead! 

Ingredients needed for this recipe:
  • parsley
  • buttermilk
  • garlic
  • salt
  • sugar
  • mayonnaise
  • parmesan cheese
You will also need the following"
  • liquid measuring cup
  • measuring cups 
  • measuring spoons
  • cotton toweling or paper towels
  • food processor
  • storage/shaker jar
Now we are ready to begin!
