The anchovies in this recipe gives the dressing a nice kick. Don’t worry – the dressing won’t taste fishy. I served the dressing over bib lettuce and beefsteak tomatoes in the photo above.

Adapted from Back to Basics



For the Dressing:

  • 1 cup whole milk yogurt (I prefer Straus, Organic Valley or Trader Joe’s or you can make your own using a culture)
  • 1 cup chopped green onion, white and green parts
  • 1 cup chopped fresh basil leaves
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 2 anchovy fillets or 2 teaspoons anchovy paste
  • 1 teaspoon Celtic sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 cup organic sour cream (I prefer Straus or you can make your own using a culture)


  1. Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Season to taste with sea salt. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
