This Greek Yogurt Ranch Dressing is light, creamy and made healthier! Greek yogurt with a little mayonnaise and a blend of dried herbs and spices are blended for a super quick and flavorful salad dressing.
Last week I shared my southwest chicken salsa ranch salad, and I promised that I would post the recipe for the greek yogurt ranch as soon as possible aka when I ran out. Well, that was yesterday.
We go through ranch so fast. Lately, for lunch I’ve been air-frying chicken and tucking them into wraps with lettuce, onion, peppers and then drizzling with a little buffalo sauce and yogurt ranch. Ps. the combination of buffalo sauce and ranch dressing is phenomenal. Just saying. However I also serve it with cut up carrots and bell peppers and most importantly with pizza.
I kept this recipe pretty simple, using dried herbs and spices (because I have plenty in my pantry), plain non-fat yogurt and mayo because the fat of the mayo helps mellow out the tanginess of the yogurt. Buttermilk for that classic bright flavor. And the total time it takes to whip this up is minutes. Which I love. Then after a little time spent in the fridge this Greek yogurt ranch dressing is ready.
First gather your ingredients. Here’s what you will need: 1/2 cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt, 1/4 cup mayo, 1/4 cup buttermilk, 1/4 cup milk (use what you drink I.e. whole, 2% or skim), a splash or two of Worcestershire sauce, 1-1/2 teaspoons dried chives, 1 teaspoon dried dill weed, 1 teaspoon garlic powder, 3/4 teaspoon dried parsley, 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt, 1/2 teaspoon onion powder and then 1/4 both paprika and freshly ground black pepper.
Next, in a mixing bowl, measure and combine the yogurt, mayo, buttermilk, a few splashes of Worcestershire sauce, chives, dill, garlic powder, parsley, paprika and onion powder.
Then grab your whisk and stir to incorporate the spices into the yogurt and buttermilk.
Next, once combined, season with 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt and 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper. Or season with more or less to taste.
Lastly, thin out the greek yogurt ranch dressing with milk until it reaches a desired consistency. For me, it was 1/4 cup. To keep this lower in fat, use 2% or skim milk.
Lastly, transfer the yogurt ranch to a bottle or container with a tight-fitting lid and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Doing this, will allow the herbs and spices to soften and marry.
Creamy and light and so flavorful!
This recipe makes about 1-1/2 cups and should last up to 7 days in your refrigerator.
