Homemade Greek Yoghurt Ranch Dressing

I love salads. They taste fresh and they make you feel good. However, I have never been able to give up salad dressing, which usually defeats the purpose of eating a healthy salad. Many salad dressings are high in calories per tablespoon and are high in unhealthy fats. So I’ve been on the lookout for a healthy homemade ranch dressing recipe.
This recipe is adapted from Show Me the Yummy and is full of flavor! (http://showmetheyummy.com/homemade-greek-yogurt-ranch-dressing/).
It is higher in healthy fat, higher in protein and lower in calories than store-bought dressings.

    • 1 tablespoon dried parsley
    • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
    • 2 teaspoons onion powder
    • ¼ teaspoons ground black pepper
    • 1 teaspoon dill weed dried (optional)
    • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
    • 1 tablespoon fresh chives
    • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
    • ½ avocado
    • ⅓ cup buttermilk
    • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
    • 1 teaspoon lemon juice


    • Place the spices (dried parsley – fresh chives) into a food processor and pulse a few times, until the spices have been ground up a bit.
    • Scrape down the sides.
    • Place the remaining ingredients – greek yogurt, avocado, buttermilk, Dijon, and lemon juice – into the food processor and pulse until the ingredients have been fully incorporated.
    • Scrape down the sides, if needed, and pulse again.
    • Transfer into a sealable container (like a mason jar) and store in the fridge.
