How To Make Greek Yogurt Dressing

It’s so easy to make your own salad dressing at home and much healthier. This Greek yogurt dressing recipe is one of the healthiest options for salad if you are after a low-fat, high-protein dressing.

It has a creamy, rich texture, minimal calories but all the filling proteins and calcium your body need.

Ingredients

All you need to make this Greek yogurt dressing are:

  • Plain Full-Fat Greek Yogurt or any plain yogurt you love, including dairy-free options like coconut yogurt or almond yogurt. You can also use low-fat Greek yogurt to cut down the calories or fat content, but the texture becomes thinner and less creamy.
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Lemon Juice, lime juice, or apple cider vinegar.
  • Salt
  • Black Pepper
  • Italian Parsley, fresh basil, or any fresh herbs you love.
  • Garlic Powder
  • Onion Powder
  • Almond Milk or any milk you love. This is optional for a less creamy dressing texture.

Preparation

Add all the ingredients to a large mixing bowl. Use a small hand whisk or spoon to bring all the ingredients together.

Taste and adjust the flavor by adding more salt and pepper.

Then, if you love creamy salad dressing, keep it as is. Or, if you like a thinner dressing texture, add a splash of almond milk or skim milk to thin out the texture.

Serving

A Greek yogurt dressing is not only delicious on top of your salad. It’s also the perfect dip for raw or roasted veggies.

And also ideal as a healthy sauce for a sandwich or on top of grilled meat or fish to add proteins and a fresh garlic flavor.

Here are some recipes that marry very well with Greek yogurt dressing.

Storage Instructions

This Greek yogurt salad dressing must be stored in the fridge in an airtight container or glass mason jar.

It lasts up to 4 days in the refrigerator or when your yogurt expires, whichever comes first.

Allergy Swaps

Below are some options to replace some of the ingredients in this recipe if you need.

  • Low-FODMap – Skip the garlic and onion powder.
  • Low-Sodium – Skip the salt.
  • Low-Fat – Swap the Greek yogurt for low-fat yogurt.

Variations

Of course, you can use this base dressing recipe to create a range of Greek yogurt dressing flavors like:

  • Parmesan Dressing – Add 1/4 cup of freshly grated Parmesan and swap lemon juice for red wine vinegar.
  • Herbs and Garlic – Replace the garlic powder with two crushed garlic cloves, and add 1/4 cup of mixed freshly chopped fresh dill, basil, and Parsley.
  • Spicy Greek Yogurt Dressing – Add 2-3 teaspoons of sriracha sauce or a pinch of cayenne pepper to the recipe.
  • Feta Yogurt Dressing – Mash in 1/3 cup of feta cheese. You can also blend the dressing in a food processor to turn the feta into a creamy feta dip.
  • Dijon Honey – Add one teaspoon of Dijon mustard and a drizzle of honey in the recipe.
  • Greek Yogurt Ranch Dressing – Add 1-2 teaspoons of dried dill, or try my Greek yogurt ranch dip.

Frequently Asked Questions

Below are some answers to your most common questions about this recipe.

Can you mix Greek yogurt with vinegar?

You can combine yogurt and vinegar to make salad dressing and add a sour kick to your recipe. However, if you are using low-fat yogurt, the acidity of the vinegar thins out the texture of the yogurt even more. It’s recommended to use full-fat yogurt to keep the mixture thick and creamy.

What can I add to Greek yogurt to make it thinner?

You can easily thin out Greek yogurt by adding a splash of milk – almond milk, skim milk, lemon juice, vinegar, or even cold water.

    1 Thought On Greek Yogurt Dressing
  1. 5 stars
    Wonderful. used dried herbs. Sure it will be even better with fresh ones. Love the additional options. I want to try the feta or parmesan as the family loves both cheeses.

    Upped the pepper to 1/2 tsp as we really like pepper but as Carine says, taste and adjust.

    Thanks again for a great dressing and dip !
