  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 shredded parmesan
  • 3 teaspoons dried basil
  • 3/4 teaspoon granulated garlic
  • salt and pepper


  • Combine all ingredients together in a bowl. Whisk to combine.

Please use dried basil in this recipe, fresh basil wont work. 
I also highly recommend using freshly grated parmesan cheese instead of the pre-grated kind.
