Greek Yogurt In Salad Dressings

25

This Sparked Me!

Recently I've started using greek yogurt in place of mayo in salad dressing recipes. It knocks fat and calories way down and tastes better in my opinion, particularly with tangy dressings. My favorite so far is the Hidden Valley Ranch dry mix. 20 calories and 1 gram of fat per serving when substituting yogurt and nixing the mayo.

    I use Dannon Low fat plain dressing the same way. I do find it spreads through the salad much better.This yogurt costs much less it is low fat, that way I can use the greek in place of cream cheese on crackers or a baked potato. My favourite is hidden vally powder too.Pat in maine.

    I like this idea a lot. I don't use salad dressing very much, but hubby simply pours it on. This is great for him. Thanks!
