Blue Cheese and Yogurt Salad Dressing Recipe

This is a lovely, creamy yogurt salad dressing recipe, although you can lower the fat substantially by using nonfat or reduced-fat dairy products. A lot of ‘reduced fat’ salad dressings at the grocery store are very high in sugar, because the extra sugar makes up for the flavor lost by leaving out the fat, but if you make your own yogurt salad dressing recipe you can make it as tasty as you like by adjusting the ingredients and perhaps using some nonfat ingredients and some regular ones (such as nonfat milk but regular mayonnaise, for example).

Try this served over a crunchy celery, walnut, and potato salad, or use it to dress up a bowl of mixed baby leaves. It would also add a lovely taste to a spinach and strawberry salad, or even romaine with sliced pears, or something else.

If you enjoy the flavor of blue cheese, you are sure to find a variety of salads that this yogurt salad dressing recipe will work perfectly with, but for the best results try it with versatile ingredients, or those which have a mild flavor like chicken, turkey, fruit or salad leaves, so the blue cheese flavor in this yogurt salad dressing recipe can really be showcased.
