When you really love salads & sauces, you find ways to make them a bit more interesting! My favorite way to kick up a salad fast is to create a new dressing. I love greek yogurt bases because I grew up eating ranch. It is an easy switch once you start playing around!
I also thought I’d show you my favorite salad dressing container (you can check out the Vibe Salad Dressing Mixer here on Amazon! ) which is perfect for my life. It is small enough that I don’t make too much (since I change things up a lot I try not to make things that go bad quickly in bulk) but large enough that you can really mix everything with the little stirrer. Plus, no mess! I just love it. My only complaint is that when you make creamy dressings, the spout is a little small but it doesn’t bother me. I just take off the lid. it is perfect for vinaigrette & thinner dressings though!
from Home in High Heels
1 cup loosely packed cilantro, chopped
1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
1/4-1/3 cup olive oil depending on texture preference
3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1/2 tablespoon white vinegar
1 garlic clove
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon fresh pepper
Optional: Chipotle pepper, jalapeno, habanero pepper, fresh lemon, flavored oils.
I really like this dressing a lot & I sometimes top it with some roasted salsa. Ryan isn’t a huge fan of cilantro but he still eats it. He prefers Italian though. If you’re looking for something a bit different, I think you’ll really like this! It is my favorite with a nice bowl of tortilla soup or tacos!
