Creamy Balsamic Dressing
This versatile dressing complements almost any green or grain-based salad and can be used as a sauce for chicken and roasted vegetables, too. Try it with this Crunch Salad --add chicken for a complete meal that's healthy and hearty.

Yield: 1+ cup


  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt (nonfat, 2%, or whole may be used)
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 teaspoons honey*
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano or Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt


  1. In a small bowl, whisk together all of the ingredients until smooth. (You can also add them to a jar with a tight-fitting lid and shake well.)

    Cover and refrigerate until needed. The dressing will thicken slightly upon refrigeration and will keep for approximately one week.


*The honey may be adjusted to preference. For a hint more sweetness, use 1 tablespoon of honey. For a bit more tang, start with 1 teaspoon.
