I started making my own salad dressing 2-3 years ago when I discovered how unhealthy store bought dressings are. Even organic salad dressing! I’m big on knowing what ingredients I’m feeding my family, and store bought dressings are full of so many questionable ingredients.
You could skip the dressing and use a little lemon juice, balsamic vinegar, or avocado instead. But if you’re like me, you might still crave a creamy dressing to drizzle over your salad. Salad dressing is one of the easiest things you can make homemade. I encourage you to start looking up some recipes!
I’m going to share one of my favorite recipes for salad dressing. This dressing goes so fast in our house. It’s so delicious (we use it as a dip too), and we don’t feel guilty about using too much dressing. Why? Because it’s made from homemade yogurt! In case you missed my post on how to make your own yogurt, click here.
As I was trying to come up with an alternative to ranch dressing, I ended up with this delicious dressing. Although it does resemble ranch a little, it’s got a delicious taste all of it’s own. You can easily whip this dressing up in a matter of minutes. You’re going to love it!
Delicious Yogurt Dressing
1 1/2 cups of yogurt (if you have really thick yogurt, sub 1/4 cup of yogurt for milk)
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon dried parsley
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
Mix all ingredients together and enjoy!
See how simple that was? I love using this jar for our homemade dressing. It’s easy to pour the dressing from, and it comes with several salad dressing recipes on the jar!
