Yogurt Salad Dressing

J. White Harris


I recently started making my own yogurt and I began looking for more ways to use the delicious bounty. I came up with this dressing and it proved to be delightfully delicious. It is much lower in calories than the dressings I was using before. The family is pleased with this dressing too. In the future this is going to be our "go to" dressing.
