Creamy Cilantro Yogurt Dressing

I don't know about you, but I will pick a creamy dressing over a vinaigrette any day.  Don't get me wrong, there are some pretty delicious vinaigrettes out there, but I just love the consistency of a creamy dressing more.  Unfortunately, creamy dressings usually come with a pretty high calorie and fat content.  That's where Greek yogurt comes into play.  Loaded with protein, it adds creaminess without all the calories.  I like this dressing with my Kale Salad with Roasted Smokey Sweet Potatoes, but would be a great addition to any salad!

Creamy Cilantro Yogurt Dressing
Makes about 1 cup

     

Ingredients:

1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
1/2 cup tightly packed cilantro
1/4 olive oil
2-3 garlic cloves, peeled and roughly chopped
1 lime, juiced
Pinch of salt & pepper
Additional lime juice or water to thin dressing, if necessary

Directions:

1.  Place all ingredients into a blender or food processor and blend until combined.  If the dressing is too thick, add more lime juice or water, a teaspoon at a time, until you reach desired consistency.  Use immediately or store in a mason jar for up to one week in the fridge.
