Sweet and tangy, light and creamy, and perfect for all of your summer salads, it’ll take just minutes to shake up a batch of Creamy Greek Yogurt Honey Lemon Lime Salad Dressing.
Creamy Greek Yogurt Honey Lemon Lime Salad Dressing
What a coincidence that today is Improv Challenge Day. You see, the Improv Challenge is one of the first group posts that I joined when I started blogging. Take a look at this post. Yikes! I can assure you that gratin tasted amazing, but it looks pretty awful, doesn’t it. And since I first joined on with Kristen, I have virtually “met” so many amazing bloggers. And if you are reading this on the day it was posted, then I am on my way to Miami to meet many of them IN PERSON for the first time. I am so excited! And soooo busy getting ready, so here, you get a few words and lots of pictures…
Lemon and lime can easily go either sweet or savory. This Creamy Greek Yogurt Honey Lemon Lime Salad Dressing is a little bit of both, actually. It’s tart and tangy, with enough creaminess from Greek yogurt and sweetness from the honey to keep it from being too harsh or overpowering. Using Greek yogurt combined with a bit of olive oil also gives that richer texture and consistency, without being heavy. You know, let’s keep our salads healthy!
I love salad with fruit, especially when you toss in some nuts and cheese, and even more especially in the summer when so much fresh fruit is available and tasting its best. This light and refreshing dressing my be my new go-to for the summer. I think it’ll be amazing on some salads with grilled chicken or shrimp, too!
For a little sneak peek, one of the recipes that I made with this dressing, which you will see next week, is for a little something I am doing with the company who made all of these awesome gadgets, which made preparing this dressing super easy…
As I mentioned, this recipe is part of the Improv Challenge, which is a blog hop hosted by Kristen of Frugal Antics of a Harried Homemaker. A theme is given, which is two assigned ingredients. Then it is up to the participating bloggers to let the creative juices flow, and see what they can come up with. Then on the third Thursday of the month, we will all publish our new recipes based on the theme. If you are have a blog and would like to join us, click on the picture to the below to learn more. If you are new to my blog, finding me because you have been following the Improv Challenge, then WELCOME!
