Creamy Greek Yogurt Maple Dijon Dressing is slightly sweet, tangy, and full of flavor, with a smooth, rich texture, but lightened up by using Greek yogurt. It’s wonderful for topping your salads, slathering on wraps or sandwiches, pouring over some chicken or turkey (you’ll see this on Sunday) or dipping veggies. Making your own homemade salad dressing couldn’t be easier, too, and then you know exactly what’s in the bottle.
I get into serious food ruts. And I’m not talking eating the same thing all week for lunch, or getting hooked on ALL THINGS PUMPKIN during October and November. I mean, like, years.
I have been eating oatmeal for breakfast nearly everyday for the past, oh, let’s say about eight years. And it’s not like I change it up. I used to eat it plain, with a little something to sweeten it up. Since January, I’ve been making Mexican Chocolate Oatmeal nonstop. EVERYDAY. Not kidding you. And then I have to explain to The Bug why he can’t have chocolate cookies or candy for breakfast. #momoftheyear
When I was back in the corporate world, for the longest time my daily lunch was a salad, turkey sandwich and yogurt, then I moved on to a mini pita, veggies and hummus with yogurt. Snack was grapes and cottage cheese. I graduated from college twelve years ago, so clearly these weren’t short-lived routines.
Since I’ve been a stay-at-home mom, salads have been the daily go-to for me, more often than not with fruit, and cheese, most frequently with this Greek Yogurt Blue Cheese Dressing (though I am known to switch out the cider vinegar for balsamic).
But move over blue cheese, there’s a new dressing in town…
It takes about three seconds to mix this up, no funky chemicals or weird ingredients. The Dijon gives it a bold pop of flavor, and the maple syrup adds that subtle, smoky sweetness that just says “Autumn”. And “EAT ME!!!”.
What is the one thing you eat over and over and over?
- ¼ c plain Greek yogurt
- ¼ c Dijon mustard
- 1 T apple cider vinegar or champagne vinegar
- 2 T real maple syrup
- 2 T olive oil

- Place all ingredients in a bowl and whisk together, or in a bottle or jar with a lid and shake vigorously until thoroughly combined.
