Curry Yogurt Dressing

Healthy Living, Recipes

Summer salads are a great way to enjoy the health benefits of delicious local produce – but did you know your favorite salad dressing may be adding unexpected sodium, fat, and calories to your diet?

Making  your own dressings or marinades at home is a simple way to cut back on the added salt, sugar, preservatives, and artificial flavors often found in store-bought options. In this recipe, low-fat yogurt and a tablespoon of light mayo give this dressing a creamy, satisfying taste while cutting back on saturated fat. Reduced-sodium soy sauce lowers salt content which can improve heart health. 

If you’re going store-bought, I recommend trying to avoid cream-based dressings like Thousand Island or Ranch because they tend to have more saturated (the “bad”) fat, and opting for a vinaigrette instead. A typical serving size is only two tablespoons, so be sure to check the nutrition facts so you know what you’re actually taking in per serving.
