Creamy Garlic-Dill Salad Dressing

This was a request from my husband. My husband is notorious for coming home from a business trip suggesting recipes for me to develop, based on something he’s had. This was a simple one, but not all are. I’m already a huge salad person, so a homemade dressing did not take too much convincing. I blogged about a homemade buttermilk ranch dressing before, that became a staple, like this one has become.

This creamy garlic-dill salad dressing is similar in style but made primarily with yogurt and loaded with fresh dill. I do add some mayonnaise and sour cream as well to make it as the total suggests “creamy“. With salad dressings, the deal is I typically use full-fat dairy. People often ask me if I can reduce the fat content on something like this. The honest answer is yes. But, you pay the price in the taste and texture especially in “creamy-style” dressings like this.

The yogurt which is the primary base here needs the full fat content to matin the smooth texture. If you must, you can use a reduced-fat mayonnaise and/or sour cream but watch the texture, you don’t want grittiness in the dressing.creamy garlic-dill salad dressing
