Natural yogurt is a fantastically useful ingredient for salad dressings. It can simply be used on its own, seasoned to taste and freshly chopped herbs such as mint added, or you can mix it into a vinaigrette base with very little olive oil or into creamed smetana or soured cream. For a mousseline-style dressing, add some whipped double cream.
Use either low-fat natural yogurt, or the thick Greek yogurt for a richer, thicker dressing. Or, try fromage frais.
