Salad Dressing with Greek Yogurt and Honey

This recipe might be light on fat but it is heavy in flavor and any fans of Greek yogurt will love the taste of this one. This recipe calls for nonfat Greek yogurt, although you could substitute regular nonfat yogurt instead of the Greek kind. It will still work but the finished dressing will be a bit different. You could even try regular Greek yogurt (not the nonfat kind) for a richer and creamier result.

As well as the yogurt this salad dressing features honey and Dijon mustard for sweetness and acidity, and balsamic vinegar and soy sauce, which might sound like unusual ingredients to add to a salad dressing with Greek yogurt but the sweetness of the balsamic vinegar balances out the mustard piquancy, and the soy sauce adds a salty flavor without having to add salt too.

Try this over mixed leaves and cucumber, adding some tomato wedges too if you want, or you could even make a lettuce salad with fresh fruit like pineapple and strawberries. It would go really well with that too. You could even use this instead of your classic standby favorite, whether that is Caesar dressing, ranch, or something else. You might even find you prefer this one.

Photo Description:

Honey and Greek yogurt are the main ingredients in our Greek inspired salad dressing recipe, but the similarity to a healthy breakfast dish stops there, because we are also adding the typical salad dressing duo of extra-virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar, along with some soy sauce for a savory taste and Dijon mustard for piquancy. These flavors go together really well, and the finished dressing is creamy, and perfectly balanced in terms of sweet and savory flavors. Enjoy this with your favorite salad components, to make a change from your usual ranch or Caesar dressing.
