Yogurt Ranch Dressing

I call this Yogurt Ranch Dressing “magic dip” because it magically makes everything it touches taste amazing. It is creamy and savory but so much better for you than most dips because it is made mostly with yogurt, and has just a little mayo for richness. Whip up a batch for dipping cut vegetables and watch them disappear, magically. Using regular yogurt here gives you more of a drizzle-able dressing. If you want a thicker dip, use Greek yogurt instead. 


Yogurt Ranch Dressing



½ cup plain low-fat or full fat regular yogurt
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 teaspoon cider vinegar
¼ teaspoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
¼ teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


In a small bowl whisk together the yogurt, mayonnaise, vinegar and garlic powder. Stir in the chives, parsley, salt and pepper.

Keeps in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
