Homemade salad dressing is really the way to go. Super fresh tasting. Plus, you control the ingredients so there are no artificial stabilizers or unpronounceable chemicals (unless, of course, you have them on hand in your pantry).
This dressing comes from Gina’s Skinny Recipes and it’s great on a green salad or a taco salad. I’ve made it before as written, but this time I realized I was out of light mayonnaise, so I just increased the Greek yogurt to 1/2 cup. Just as tasty!
