Greek yogurt lime dressing

Creamy, protein-rich Greek yogurt lime dressing - the perfect healthier alternative to cream-based dressings for any type of salad| www.ricottaandradishes.com

Well well, what do we have here…a delicious, creamy dressing made with nothing but Greek yogurt, fresh cilantro, lime juice, green onions and a little salt?  Just what your salad has been missing!

If vinaigrette dressings don’t do it for you, but you’re still aiming for a healthier homemade option, look no further than Greek yogurt dressing.  This extremely simple, easy-to-make recipe takes just a few minutes to prepare and has a fresh, bright flavour that you just don’t get from bottled dressings.

The lime and cilantro flavours in this recipe would pair beautifully with Mexican-inspired ingredients (think corn, black beans, chiles, tomatoes).  Or try it on your favourite lettuce/veggies salad or potato salad.  Anything goes, really! It would even work as a topping for steak tacos, wraps and burgers.

A blender gives the dressing the smoothest consistency, but you could also use a mini food processor or immersion blender.  Plain old elbow grease works as well if you have a whisk and don’t mind some chunky bits.  Just chop your herbs and onion really finely and it shouldn’t be a problem.  Actually, I kind of like when there are pieces of fresh herbs here and there.

This particular batch of dressing was destined for a gorgeous chicken salad bursting with grilled summer vegetables and fruit.  I’ll be posting that recipe tomorrow so be sure to check back!  The flavours are to-die-for, but what really gets me excited about that salad are the vibrant colours (hint: grilled peaches are involved).  YUM!
