Garlic and Herb Goat Yogurt Dressing

I’ve recently fallen in love with creamy, dreamy goat and sheep yogurts. I love them unsweetened, silky¬†and tart, they make a lovely dessert or simple breakfast. In this recipe I blend a container with fresh herbs and spicy garlic for a bright, flavorful dressing that is great over baby greens, zucchini noodles, dipping veggies, or spreading on sandwiches in place of mayo.

Herb and Garlic Goat Yogurt Dressing

Ingredients:

1 small container plain goat or sheep yogurt

1 small handful fresh chives

1 small handful fresh basil

1 small handful fresh tarragon

2 garlic cloves

juice of 1 lemon

sea salt, to taste

Blend until creamy.

Experimenting with Fruit Based Salad Dressings

Spending the day on juices, smoothies and simple fruit meals is a piece of (fruit?) cake but by the time dinner rolls around I’m ready for something savory. The 80/10/10 plan omits added salt which has honestly been the hardest thing for me so far but I feel like my taste buds are definitely waking up to some subtler flavors. I’ve played with a few dressing ideas but my favorite base so far is definitely mango. I’ll call this dressing 80/10/10-ish because generally garlic and onions are also omitted and combining fruit with fat is generally discouraged. Since this is all very new to me I’m giving myself a little flexibility!

Mango Dressing

Ingredients:

flesh from one mango
2 green onions
1/2 clove garlic
sliver of ginger
3 fresh dates, pitted
1/4 of an avocado (optional)
water for blending

Blend until creamy, using just enough water for desired consistency.

Salsini Dip

Despite not being particularly appealing to look at, I love this dip because it requires NO crazy kitchen tools. It can be whipped together in a matter of seconds with a fork and a bowl and used as a dip for veggies or a dressing for salad! Creamy, as-spicy-as-you’d-like it, and completely travel-friendly.

Ingredients:

1/4 cup your favorite organic salsa
1/2 cup raw tahini

Mix with a fork.
