When thinking about salad week, I was contemplating it would be yummy to have some kind of creamy pesto salad dressing. It would be great to top a Italian style salad.  As a result, this is the recipe I came up with.  

I placed it on a salad that included Italian blend salad mix. There was also chunks of mozzarella, artichoke hearts from a can, strips of salami, olives, tomatoes, and peppers.  It was delish!  If you love pesto, you will love this creamy dressing.

  1. I swear Laura, sometimes I wonder if we share the same brain! I totally had a salad week planned for this week too but moved it to next week because I had too many other blog posts I had to get shared this week! This salad dressing sounds delish! And this is perfect timing because I just made a big batch of homemade pesto yesterday!
