This simple yogurt dressing is one of my go-to recipes for green salads! It’s healthy, packed with flavor, and super easy to make. I use plant-based yogurt to make it vegan.

Why This Recipe Works

I’m a huge fan of green salads. Especially over the warmer months, they make such a great and healthy lunch. This easy yogurt dressing is one of my favorite dressings and I make it almost every week. 

I usually make a larger batch and then store it in the fridge to make things easier on the next few days. Stored in an airtight container in the fridge, it will keep up to 3-4 days. 

The preparation couldn’t be much easier and all you need is 5 minutes. I used vegan yogurt, one clove of garlic, fresh herbs, olive oil, white wine vinegar, fresh lemon juice, and salt and pepper. Just place everything into a bowl and stir until combined. 

You can use any fresh herbs you like, but my favorites are parsley, dill, and chives. For the best flavor, I highly recommend using fresh herbs, but the recipe also works well with frozen herbs. 

Besides, it’s important to use unsweetened yogurt for this dressing. I usually use coconut or soy yogurt.
