One of the Best Yogurt Salad Dressings

There are various healthy yogurt salad dressings that you can choose from if you want a light salad without a thick, calorific dressing. A lot of commercial yogurt salad dressings feature unhealthy amounts of salt or sugar though (or both) so it is always best to prepare your own. Not only are homemade salad dressings healthier than the bottled ones but they also taste much fresher and better.

A little lemon juice and garlic added to yogurt, as well as fresh mint, converts it into a healthy salad dressing in minutes. You can drizzle the following yogurt salad dressing over your favorite salad greens, or serve it as a dip. It goes without saying that yogurt is a healthier ingredient than mayonnaise or sour cream, so why not use it instead, and make flavorful yogurt salad dressings to jazz up your salads and bewitch your dinner guests?

Although some people assume yogurt salad dressings will be less flavorful or rich than fattening creamy ones, this is simply not the case, and you can make some really great-tasting yogurt salad dressings. Perhaps you want to change the following recipe a little, swapping the lemon for lime, or adding some minced cucumber.

Photo Description:

Several cuisines make dips or dressings based on yogurt, including Greek, Indian, Turkish, and sometimes American, because yogurt offers a wonderful tang and you can choose from plain yogurt, Greek yogurt or another thick, strained kind. And then you have aromatic mint to add a fragrant touch, fresh lemon for a bright citrusy touch, and of course garlic to liven the flavor up even more. This would be wonderful served with a steak or chicken salad, or you might want to serve it as a dip with vegetable crudités or drizzle it over a plate of greens.
