We are always trying to find healthy swaps for our favorite recipes.  We have found that Greek yogurt is a delicious substitute for sour cream and mayonnaise in many recipes.  The following recipe is one of our favorite dressings to put on fish or chicken tacos or even a salad.  We love Healthy Greek Yogurt Dressing……

Yogurt Dressing Recipe

Lemon Yogurt Dressing

yogurt recipes

  • 1/2 Cup of Greeek Yogurt
  • 1 lemon
  • Oregano
  • Ground Cumin
  • Pepper
  • Salt

Preparation:

Place yogurt into a bowl and squeeze lemon juice over it. Season to taste.  Once you get to know me better you will know you that I rarely measure anything.  I just dash in a bit of each of the above (be careful with the salt) and stir it all up.

I use non fat Stonyfield Greek Yogurt for this recipe – I am sure a full or low fat would be yummy too and still a better option than sour cream or mayonnaise.  For the longest time we made this recipe with sour cream – but Greek Yogurt is such a healthier option and I think it tastes the same – go figure!

Healthy Easy Recipe

The husband and kids had this with chicken tacos.  We used whole wheat tortillas, homemade black beans (but canned would be fine), and chopped BBQ Chicken, and sweet baby kale – drizzle some of this delicious and perfectly healthy dressing on top and it is a super easy favorite!

I modify to be even lower in carbs and higher in protein by making it a tasty salad!  I use kale, a spoonful of quinoa, chopped chicken, beans, and drizzle the dressing on top – seriously – SO GOOD!  The creamy dressing really tastes inappropriately fattening – and it isn’t at all!
