Today I decided to try out something new – a Greek Yogurt Poppy Seed Dressing. This dressing is tangy and sweet, but without all of the extra calories from mayonnaise, which would typically be used in a dressing recipe. Mine is made with non-fat greek yogurt. This provides extra protein and is low in calories. With this simple substitute, you can feel a lot better about what is topping your salad!
Greek yogurt is one of my favorite substitutes to use in recipes. I like to use it in place of sour cream or mayonnaise, and in some baked goods instead of milk. Even a dollop on top of a baked potato is delicious. It still has a tangy and creamy taste, but it’s high in protein, low in carbs, and fat-free!
I used one single serve container of Dannon Oikos Plain Greek Yogurt, but you are welcome to use whatever brand you prefer. One single serve container is currently about 2/3 of a cup in size. So If you have a bigger container, simply measure out 2/3 of a cup.
- 2/3 cup greek yogurt
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
- 1 teaspoon dijon mustard
- 1 teaspoon poppy seeds
- 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
In a bowl, whisk together all ingredients until fully combined.
