Skinny Creamy Black Pepper Dressing

The heat has arrived and I do not want to be working over a warm stove or oven. I have a few great crock pot recipes, but when I’m mainly cooking for myself that doesn’t work. My go to these hot days are salads. I made this amazing Strawberry Goat Cheese Salad and to top it off I create a Skinny Creamy Black Pepper Dressing that is amazing.

I just received The Flavor Bible (affiliate link) as a gift for my birthday. I am so excited to learn more about how flavors work together as I learn more about cooking. One flavor that I have been curious about is strawberries and black pepper. I used this book to create this new recipe, you have to try it and let me know what you think of the flavor combination.

I used vinegar and milk to create a buttermilk like base for this dressing. If you have buttermilk in your refrigerator you can use that as well.
