Greek Yogurt Salad Dressing
What is Greek yogurt dressing? Essentially, it is just any dressing recipe that uses Greek yogurt instead of mayonnaise.
This particular recipe uses flavors similar to a traditional Greek salad recipe (thanks to the lemon juice, herb and spices), but with a creamy twist; however, there are many other variations such as a Greek Yogurt Ranch or Greek Yogurt Honey Mustard.
But the bad part about these dressings is that they can be so heavy! I needed a way to still enjoy that creamy flavor, but just to do it a little lighter.
One of my staple ingredients is Greek yogurt and one of its primary uses is for excellent marinades and homemade salad dressing. Yep, Greek yogurt!
As a Marinade
It keeps meats and fish nice and moist, while gently flavoring vegetables. Plain yogurt is like a blank canvas waiting to be spiced and flavored with whatever your heart desires, in this case, a homemade Greek Yogurt Salad Dressing.
As a Salad Dressing
My favorite way for using this dressing is as, just that, a salad dressing! It tastes great on a traditional Greek salad. A Greek salad generally contains cucumbers, tomatoes, red onion, kalamata olives and Feta cheese.
The bright, fresh flavors of the lemon juice and apple cider vinegar of this homemade dressing recipe really take a Greek salad over the top.
However, this dressing doesn’t have to only be used to top a salad. You can use it as a dip for veggies, or even a marinade for steak, too.
One of the best parts is that making this dressing could not be easier. You simply combine the Greek yogurt, vinegar, lemon juice, herbs and spices together completely, cover and chill.
Perfect for all of your summer salads, marinade and dip needs.
How long does Greek yogurt dressing last? Because this dressing is homemade and doesn’t contain the preservatives that most store bought dressing do, it might now last as long.
I would check the expiration date of the Greek yogurt you use, and then add one to two weeks to that. The vinegar in the recipe will help it to last a little longer.
