German Salad Dressing

As part of cooling off Salads are the perfect summer meal and you can make them right out of whatever you are growing in your garden. They are filling and delicious and yet not too heavy. I eat salad as a meal and I enjoy it but you will have to try my salads to see what I mean.

As part of the perfect salad I am going to recommend you make German Salad dressing as the top but if you prefer to use vinegar/lemon and oil I understand as well. But I would suggest that German salad Dressing is lighter in calories. The choice is yours but I will give you the recipe for German Salad Dressing just in case.


German Salad Dressing

3/4 plain yogurt

1 tablespoon of Safflower or olive oil

2 tablespoons chopped chives

2 tablespoons chopped dill

1 clove of garlic mince garlic

2 teaspoons of white wine vinegar

1 teaspoon of Dijon mustard

Directions

Whisk yogurt, oil and vinegar together with mustard then add in all of the herbs. Place is a bottle put the lid on and shake. I use old salad dressing bottles for this duty. Refrigerate whatever is left over for your next salad.

My Pefect Salad

The perfect salad depends on the individuals tastes but here is mine and I just love it. So here goes...

Salad

3 cups of mixed greens washed and dried.

15 leaves of fresh basil washed and dried.

2 hard boiled eggs peel a sliced into fourths.

1 Advocado peeled and slice into tenths.

2 ugly tomatoes washed and sliced

2 slices of purple onion

Salt to taste

Pepper to taste

This usually makes enough for three people unless one of them is very hungry.

      Hi Paperfly,

      I am so glad you tried the dressing. I love pepper as well.

      I wish you would write a hub on making yogurt. I would love to know how to do that.

      All My Best,

      JT

      Made this dressing the other day. Nice and simple. I make my own yogurt so the extra zing from that adds extra flavor. I'm a fresh cracked pepper freak so I added it to the dressing rather than the salad. :P

      So true and they usually are more inexpensive.

      I bet it would be delicious as a dip. I was at a Greek restaurant once and they had a dip made with yogurt for the different meat kabobs they serve, and it was tremendous! I absolutely love homemade dressings and dips- you can never seem to get the same kind of flavor out of bottled varities.

      Hi jwhitman,

      I really appreciate you reading, posting a comment and taking the time to provide feedback. I have to be completely honest with you, Sean Kinn of the hubs pages first tld me of the differences between German Salad dressing and american Salad dressing. He was going to write a hub on it. I got a little impatient to I did some research changed the recipe to what I thought was perfection and wrote the hub.

      I would be cautious using the German slad dressing as a marinade because of the high bacteria content in both raw chicken and in yogurt but it might mae a wonderful dip for the chicken after it is cooked.

      I have a vested interest in keeping all of my readers healthy so please keep in mind yogurt has active bacteria as well as raw chicken and caution should be used when marinating.

      Thank you again for reading, commenting and following.

      I like your German Salad Dressing recipe- it sounds delicious not only for salads but maybe as a marinade for grilled chicken. Nice job! Voting up, useful and interesting = )
