Creamy Basil Vinaigrette

If you like basil you will love this vinaigrette.  This dressing you will not find in any grocery store, I've looked!  I first had a dressing like this in Amsterdam.  On Saturday's we would walk to the open market called Noordermarkt Organic Farmers Market where we bought our vegetables and fruits, my favorites were the tomatoes, mozzarella, and the best goat cheese ever.  We sure miss our  Saturday shopping in Amsterdam.  After the market we would head over to our favorite bread store called Crust & Crumbs.  They had fabulous breads and this is where I found the dressing.  So I experimented with the ingredients listed on the bottle and came up with this recipe.  It is very close except they used raw eggs in theirs and I used store bought mayonaisse.  I like short-cuts and I am not to fond of raw eggs!  Every time I make this dressing it takes me back to the fun times living in Amsterdam, Netherlands.
