After a weekend of eating too many carbs and heavy foods, I like to eat light during the week with a nice salad.  I’ve even converted my husband to be a salad eater!  Not only do I like making hearty salads at home, but I also like to make my own dressing.  My Lightened Up Green Goddess Dressing is fresh, tangy, and a delicious addition to any salad.  Green onion, jalapeno, cilantro, garlic, Greek yogurt blended with honey and oil.  Flavorful, fresh salad dressing made at home!  This is a Weight Watchers friendly recipe and 1 tablespoon is 1 SmartPoint.

 

Weight Watchers has taught me is that I really need to pay attention to food labels and what’s in jarred or bottled foods.  I used to buy fat free salad dressing all the time without paying any attention to what is actually in the dressing.  This also goes for jarred salsas…  I was a jarred salsa hoarder and used to buy a different brand of jarred salsa every week when I went to the grocery store.  Now, I just make my own salsa!

 

One day, I decided to actually read the food ingredients on the bottled salad dressing.  I was shocked by ingredients that: #1 I couldn’t pronounce and #2 the amount of ingredients!  A lot of processed food has artificial ingredients to make it fat free and keep it preserved.  After deciding that I didn’t want to buy fat free dressing anymore, I started to make my own or buy certain brands that limit the number of ingredients.  I always thought that homemade salad dressing was super fattening and not Weight Watchers friendly, until I actually gave it a try!

 

As of late, my current homemade salad dressing obsession is my Lightened Up Green Goddess Dressing.  I’m a sucker for any sauces or dips that are creamy and this dressing is just that!  Fresh herbs mixed with Greek yogurt and a hint of honey are the perfect addition to any salad.  I like to make a batch of this on Sunday and have it on hand throughout the week for a quick lunch or dinner salad dressing.   Not only is this dressing fresh and made without preservatives, it’s SO easy!

 

To a food processor, add green onions, half a jalapeno, cilantro, garlic, salt, pepper, Greek yogurt, vinegar, lemon juice, honey, oil, and water.

   

 

 

Blend up the dressing until its smooth!  This dressing with stay fresh for up to 5 days in the refrigerator.

  1. Gosh, this dressing sounds so yummy. And healthy, too. It's a win win. Thank you for sharing your recipe!
  2. I think everything is delicious with cilantro and lemon! This reminds me of lemon aioli such a healthy alternative.
  3. This looks so delicious! I am always looking for new dressing recipes to spruce up my salads!
  4. Loving this dressing... it's definitely not at all a traditional Green Goddess, but the combo of cilantro and jalapeno sounds fabulous, and the fact that it's creamy without a zillion calories is a huge bonus in my books. I've got a turkey taco salad recipe that needs to be made over with this dressing, like, tonight.
