Homemade Greek Yogurt Salad Dressing

Submitted by: CHEF_MEG
Homemade Greek Yogurt Salad Dressing

Introduction

Use this to dress your salad or as a dipping sauce for cut vegetables. Don't like cilantro? No problem, just swap it out for Italian parsley or dill.
Use this to dress your salad or as a dipping sauce for cut vegetables. Don't like cilantro? No problem, just swap it out for Italian parsley or dill.

Number of Servings: 12

Ingredients

    1/2 cup chopped cilantro leaves
    2 green onions, white and green parts
    juice of 1 lemon (3-4 tablespoons)
    1/2 teaspoon black pepper
    6 ounces nonfat Greek yogurt







Tips

If you don't have a food processor or blender, chop the cilantro and green onions by hand and blend with remaining ingredients using a fork.

Save time: Don't pick off each leaf by hand. Use a chef's knife and make short horizontal strokes along the base of the leaves and they'll come right off.


Directions

Place all ingredients except the yogurt in a small food processor or blender and pulse to chop. Add the yogurt and pulse to combine. Refrigerate for up to five days and serve cold.



Serving Size: Makes 3/4 cup, one tablespoon per serving

    Great! I added two cloves of garlic, minced very fine. A great tangy dressing/dip. I think it would even make a good sandwich spread, but haven't tried it yet. - 3/26/12

    I love this! I would recommend using 3 tbsp of lemon juice, not the full 4. Also, I substituted dill in for the cilantro and it's really delicious! Lots of flavor! I put use it with everything- salads, on top of baked potatoes, as a dip... you name it! - 6/12/12

    Great idea! However, why only use the cilantro leaves? Whenever I use cilantro, I use the stems as well. There's plenty of flavor there that's getting thrown out! - 3/5/12

    My yield was 1.25 cups. This is very good and had a nice bite. I made it exactly as stated. You could probably substitute lime juice for the lemon juice, maybe add some fresh minced garlic. But just as is, it's very good. Thanks for the recipe. - 3/25/12

    Glad I found this, low sodium dressing is practically non existent, at 5 mg I love it!!! Used Cilantro spice (1 TBS and 1 tsp) instead of fresh, need to dial it back a little as it is spicy. Even the wife unit like it and she is all about Kraft Ranch, Bacon etc. dressings - 6/27/12

    I have made something very close to this recipe except I put some hot sauce in it and I didn't use lemon juice. It is a great healthy dip! Love it!!

    Sounds awesome--I can't wait to try this one. Someone suggested dill, so I think I might experiment a bit.
    Also, it's nice to read so many positive comments--sometimes the negative words thrown around in this section seem very mean and not at all helpful.
    Stay positive, and keep the idea's comin - 3/5/13

  • I have to watch my sodium so I LOVE making my own salad dressing. I also blend herbs with Olive or Saffron oil. My family likes these fresh versions better than the stuff from the store. The only one I haven't figured out...Poppy Seed :-) - 6/14/14
