Greek Yogurt Strawberry Salad Dressing tastes a little bit like eating strawberry ice cream drizzled right over you salad! Oh my goodness you guys, I could eat salad every day and not get bored of it if it included this dressing…and because it’s made with Greek yogurt I could and not even feel bad about it!
Today Carson is going to PROM! Somehow he feels too little, well not little, too young for prom. I remember going to prom but I don’t remember it being that big of a deal. I feel like prom is the only thing we’ve been talking about for weeks and to be honest I’ll be a excited when it’s over.
He’s off riding ATV’s in the mountains for his day date right now. His friends bought hotdogs, buns, chips and paper plates so they could have a hotdog roast while they are riding. That’s it? No salad, dessert, drinks, or napkins? He reassured me that everything would be just fine and just to make sure everyone had options just in case they didn’t like hotdogs he was going to bring some deer sausage along! Like that’s a better option! Gross!
I never know how much to boss him around or if I should just let him be. This time I decided to just let him be…kind of! His date is a cute girl and I felt a responsibility to watch out for her just a little. On his way out the door I handed him a little brown bag with napkins, two raspberry lemonades, and a king sized candy bar! Girls need chocolate! I think he’ll thank me later!
GREEK YOGURT STRAWBERRY SALAD DRESSING
It’s never easy to know how much to interfere in my lives and how much to let them do their own thing. On the other hand, deciding whether I should make Greek Yogurt Salad Dressing is an easy decision! I’m not even kidding you when I say it’s the BEST salad dressing I’ve tasted in a long time! It’s the kind of dressing that will make you plan the rest of your dinner menu around this your salad!
GREEK YOGURT STRAWBERRY SALAD DRESSING – INGREDIENTS
A few days ago I got a package in the mail from Rigoni di Asiago! Tucked in that box were a bottle of Dolcedi low glycemic sweetener from apples and a jar of organic strawberry fruit spread made with apple sweetener! Finally, a fruit spread that’s not packed with more sugar than fruit! I knew right away I wanted to make salad dressing out of that strawberry fruit spread!
Adding Greek yogurt to recipes is always a healthy option too. Besides that it’s so creamy and packed with good for you nutrients.
GREEK YOGURT STRAWBERRY SALAD DRESSING – INSTRUCTIONS
This creamy salad dressing only takes a couple minutes to make and just a handful of ingredients.
First, add strawberry fruit spread, strawberry Greek yogurt, a little sweetener and some vinegar to a blender.
I added one strawberry too just to add a hint of freshness and some color and because I happened to have strawberries in the fridge.
Blend it all up.
Next, sprinkle some poppy seeds in there. Then pulse once or twice just to incorporate.
If you are like me you will need to stick your finger in there so you can get a little taste! You guys…it’s yummy! So yummy!
Finally, pour it in a serving container and enjoy! Store leftovers in the fridge for up to one week.
Right after I made this recipe I thought of a fun idea for creating an over the top strawberry salad using Greek Yogurt Strawberry Dressing! Next time I go to town (sometimes I wish I lived near a grocery store, or near anything at all) I will grab the ingredients and show you how to make it! I’m already in love with my new Strawberry Shortcake Salad in my mind!
For now this dressing is just right served over any strawberry spinach type of salad!

- ½ c. strawberry Greek yogurt
