Yogurt-Based German Salad Dressing with Chives and Dill
This German salad dressing is great on a Waldorf-type salad or on various noodles or rice-based ones. It also suits a basic lettuce and tomato salad. The garlic and onions give it a bit of zip and the yogurt is a healthier choice than using sour cream.
This recipe will dress a salad for four people and it is also very quick to make. The mustard is optional because, although some people like the extra zing it gives the German salad dressing, others find it dominates the flavor of the dressing, so it is up to you whether or not to include it.
Perhaps you are looking forward to trying a new salad dressing, in which case why not give this one a whirl and perhaps it will become one of your new favorites? The recipe is simple to prepare and it goes with anything. You might already have some of the ingredients in the refrigerator or cupboards.
We recommend letting the salad sit for an hour before serving it, or even longer, maybe overnight, so the flavors can blend and mellow. If you do not have time to do that, you can always skip that step, but it is worth doing if you can plan to mamke this dressing ahead.
- 1 cup plain yogurt
- 1 tablespoon chopped dill
- 1 tablespoon chopped chives
- 1 tablespoon minced onion
- 1 teaspoon hot mustard (optional)
- 1 teaspoon minced garlic
- 2 teaspoon sugar
- 2 teaspoons white balsamic vinegar or white wine vinegar
- 1 tablespoon walnut or canola oil
- Combine the yogurt with the vinegar, oil, and sugar.
- Add the mustard, if you want to use it.
- Stir in the chives, dill, garlic, and onions and let the dressing sit for at least a few minutes.
- Let it sit in the refrigerator for a few hours for a smoother, more blended taste, and stir again before using.
- Serve at room temperature or chilled.
Not everyone wants to make a mayonnaise-based salad dressing or something with a lot of oil in, but this yogurt salad dressing offers just as much creaminess as well as the typical yogurt tang. The onion and garlic are nice here, while the herbs add aromatic flair to the overall taste. You can drizzle this over any kind of salad, perhaps mixed leaves, something with grilled chicken or vegetables, or a spinach, strawberry and walnut appetizer salad. Actually the sky is the limit. If you can think of a flavorful salad, why not add some of this dressing to make it even better?
