Healthy Greek Yogurt Ranch Dressing

Move over bottled dressing!  Make a big batch of my healthy Ranch Dressing with Greek Yogurt!

Healthy Ranch Dressing with Greek Yogurt recipe

Hello hello!

My Healthy Greek Salad Dressing went over so well, I decided to share a few more of my favorite dressing creations. Homemade salad dressings are really very simple and something you can make ahead and use all week.  I have nothing against using a bottle in a pinch, but homemade tastes so much better and you can control what you put in them. My Ranch Dressing with Greek Yogurt takes everything bad for you OUT of the ranch and makes it an amazing dressing or dip you can actually feel good eating.  This is a ranch that tastes amazing but is totally healthy!

Ranch Dressing with Greek Yogurt

The base for this ranch dressing with greek yogurt is basically just greek yogurt and milk.  The milk thins it out a bit and you can adjust the amount of milk you put in to adapt for what you are using it for.

Want a thin salad dressing?  Use more milk!  Want a thick dip?  Use less!

Either way it’s delicious!

The recipe calls for using either fresh or dried herbs, making it a great year-round recipe.  You can use whatever you have.  Since my garden is going so well this year, I used fresh herbs in this version.  It packs a lot of flavor too.  I think you will be pleasantly surprised.

If you have picky kids (or a picky husband!) this recipe is the perfect addition to a salad or veggie plate.  They’ll never know you made the swap.

The entire recipe for my Ranch Dressing with Greek Yogurt takes less than 5 minutes to make.  It’s made with ingredients I normally keep in my pantry and spice rack, so hopefully, it will be pretty easy for you to give it a try.

    I can’t really do a lot of acidity. Do you have any salad dressing recipes that have some natural sweetness?

    Great recipe. My son has been on a ranch dressing kick lately and I grimace at the thought of what’s in it even when it’s the “healthy” organic kind. This is a great alternative.

      It will last as long as the greek yogurt and milk expiration date.

    Yes! I love ranch- on my salad, on my pizza, anything! And even better is that I have all the ingredients at home right now- in the fridge or in my garden.
