Yogurt and Herb Dressing
- TOTAL TIME: 15 MIN
- SERVINGS: 1 1/2 cups
This is a lighter take on the classic Green Goddess dressing, which is traditionally made with lots of mayonnaise and sour cream. The dressing is delicious on salads or as a dip for crisp vegetables, like cucumbers, radishes and iceberg lettuce.
