Healthy Homemade Creamy Salad Dressing

This is a fabulous dressing because it can be used as a base for any salad; you can tweak it a million ways and it never overshadows the other flavors in the salad. I use it on everything from grilled chicken or salmon and feta salads to side salads and as a carrot dip. Again, if the Hidden Valley (14g fat mind you) Ranch Dressing loving husband likes this, you can take that as a pretty good endorsement. Since it is made with all healthy ingredients you also don’t have to worry about icky long lists of unpronounceable “things” in commercial dressings AND it has no fat, about 20 calories per serving and vitamins, protein and live yogurt cultures!

 

 

 

  • 2 Cups Fage 0% Greek Yogurt
  • 2 Tablespoons Stone Ground Mustard
  • 2 teaspoons Grey Poupon Dijon
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  • 1-2 teaspoons local honey

Whisk together

Try on a quick side salad with dinner:

  • Spinach
  • Thinly sliced red or sweet Vidalia onions
  • Freshly grated Parmesan or Reggiano cheese

Optional Ideas I’ve used for spicing it up:

  • Chopped Chives or Scallions
  • Worcestershire Sauce
  • In place of honey: Habenero Pepper Jam (spicy and sweet-YUM) or any preserve, strawberry or fig are also delish
  • Sriracha Hot Chili sauce
