Yogurt Ranch Dressing Recipe

Here’s a nice little twist on traditional ranch dressing. I love the tartness the yogurt adds to it. It’s tempered down just enough by the mayonnaise and the different spices and herbs add just a little kick to it.

One thing I like about homemade dressing recipes like this is that you can tweak them to taste. If you love garlic, add a little more. Don’t like it at all? Just leave it out. Adding more mayonnaise will make the dressing richer and creamier, while using less really let’s the yogurt shine.

Make sure you let this sit for a while to allow the flavors to blend. If it’s too thick to your liking, thin it out with a little milk, cream of even a small splash of water.

I use a similar recipe for my ranch style dressing only I strain the yogurt thus making it greek style and add a bit of mayonnaise. This also works for dressing such salads as tuna, chicken, slamon, pasta salads and potato salad. I find that mixing the mayo and yogurt cuts the calories so I can use the full fat mayo and also I can eliminate the vinegar because the yogurt is tart on its own.
