My love for salads is year round. Winter, spring, summer and fall, you name it. I vary the ingredients depending on my mood and what is in season. The trick to a great salad is making sure you have different textures, tastes (sweet, sour, salty, etc.), some protein and fat, and a really good salad dressing. I rarely find a store bought dressing that I like, I find that making my own is more satisfying and delicious. My go to is olive oil, lemon or balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper, but, it is also fun to mix it up a bit.
This yogurt dill salad dressing, is a perfect balance of tart, creamy, slightly sweet and refreshing. Enjoy!
