How do you feel about using yogurt with your salad instead of salad dressing?

The nutritionist at my husband's work told him that as a healthy alternative to salad dressing to use yogurt, any flavor you like.

That does not sound very delicious. I want to hear others thoughts on it before my husband and I try it for the first time.

I'm like, "My favorite yogurt is Boston Creme Pie and I'm pretty sure that won't taste very good with salad." Haha.

  • I use yogurt based dressings, they are very good. You can find them by the fruits and vegetables over by the organic products (they are refrigerated).

  • I hadn't thought of that but I bet it would be fantastic! Get some plain yoghurt and a low or no salt dip or salad dressing mix and enjoy. :) Thanks for the idea!

  • Ew. I'd rather eat it plain. I'm thinking though they meant plain yogurt...and you could always mix in some seasonings, Mrs. Dash, whatever...but it doesn't sound good to me. My FIL is diabetic and uses cottage cheese & cole slaw in place of dressing at salad bars.

  • It's better to use a product that makes salad dressings with yogurt than to try to concoct a dressing recipe yourself. Bolthouse Farms makes a yogurt based dressing and they have it in Classic Ranch, Caesar Parmigiano, Creamy Blue Cheese, Honey Mustard, Classic Coleslaw, Creamy Italian and Thousand Island. They have 40-80 calories per serving (2 TBSP which actually goes a LONG way on a salad...I make a 4-5 cup salad every day for lunch and use 2 TBSP of dressing and it is really more than enough). It's a healthy option:

    Also, an even healthier option than yogurt are olive oil vinagarette dressings....they have less calories than other choices.

  • I love Ranch dressing, but I also love Olive Oil Vinagarette. My husband likes Italian. Gross.
