My friend was telling me about a Greek yogurt dressing she found the other day that was quite good. I knew I didn’t want to go searching for it so I figured I’d try to make one on my own. If you don’t like cilantro, try it with basil or Italian parsley (flat leaf). I am sure it would be great. Next time, I am going to try this with half the olive oil and see if it makes a difference!
Cilantro Greek Yogurt Dressing/Dip
2 Tbs olive oil
1 cup Greek yogurt, plain (I used 0% fat)
1/3 cup honey
1 bunch cilantro, roughly chopped
1 scallion, roughly chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped finely
1 Tbs. lime juice
1 Tbs. lemon juice
1 Tbs. apple cider vinegar
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp ancho chili powder
Combine all ingredients in a small blender and mix until smooth. Keep in frig and allow to meld for at least 2-3 hours.
What did I love about this recipe? I really prefer to make my own salad dressing. It tastes better and I know what is in there. Look at your dressing labels and I bet you can’t pronounce half the ingredients! I might be wrong, but that doesn’t seem like a good thing!
What didn’t I love about this recipe? Well, I liked it, but I don’t think it tasted as great day 3 as it did day 1. If you don’t like cilantro or Greek yogurt, it might not be your favorite…but I liked it!
