Recipe Summary

Recipe Servings: 14 portions
Recipe Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Recipe Cook Time: 0 minutes


1/2 cup Lucini® Premium Select Extra Virgin Olive Oil®
1/2 cup reduced fat mayonnaise
1/2 cup buttermilk
2 tablespoons grainy mustard, such as Moutarde de Meaux
2 tablespoons Lucini® Pinot Grigio White Wine Vinegar
2 tablespoons chopped rinsed capers
2 tablespoons minced shallots
2 teaspoons chopped fresh oregano
1 teaspoon chopped fresh basil
1 teaspoon sugar
salt and hot red pepper sauce


Place all the ingredients in a jar and shake well to blend. (The dressing can be prepared up to 1 week ahead, covered, and refrigerated).

Fans of thick and creamy salad dressing will love this. I like to make it in a glass jar to store in the refrigerator – just give it a good shake to mix everything up before serving.
