The Classics: Yogurt-Herb Dressing


We get a lot of requests for vinaigrette recipes from our readers and clients so I wanted to share our latest favorite dressing (other recipes here and here.) Sarah and I are obsessed with this tangy yogurt-herb salad dressing! Adapted from a Bon Appetit recipe for Lemon-Yogurt dressing we added some more herbs and are enjoying it on crunchy salad greens or as a dip for baby spring vegetables.


Salad with Yogurt Dressing


Look for this dressing next week as the star of our Easter Brunch Menu!


Yogurt Herb Dressing
1 cup plain whole-milk yogurt (we use Fage brand Greek yogurt)
1/4 cup avocado or canola oil
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1 garlic clove, finely minced
1/3 cup chopped fresh Italian parsley
1.4 cup chopped fresh chives
¼ cup chopped fresh dill
Fine sea salt

Whisk the first 4 ingredients in small bowl. Add in the herbs and season dressing to taste with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper.  Thin with hot water, 1 tablespoon at a time, if necessary.  Serve immediately.




The Weekend Dish

Sarah and I are both attending a bridal shower this weekend for a friend and I’m doing some cooking for the event today. Should prove to be very beautiful, pics to follow next week. Teaser: it’s has a French theme and is being held at Kiki de Montparnasse. Oh la la.


Salads are sexy too, if you eat the leaves with your fingers. Brush up on salad making tips from The Master, Alice Waters.

herb pot

Remember my organic potted herb “garden” from last year? It has fallen into disrepair so Sunday will be devoted to potting the mint in one pot so it doesn’t vampire my other herbs! Then basil and parsley in another pot.

Happy Weekend!
