Southwestern Greek Yogurt Dressing

We love anything homemade because we know exactly what ingredients are going inside the food we put in our bodies. This Greek yogurt dressing is delicious with a spicy kick. You can use this dressing on your favorite salad or even use it as a dip. It is easy to make and you will feel less guilty about eating it since its made out of Greek yogurt which has more protein and no saturated fat unlike sour cream and mayonnaise.

Dress this naked salad up with your favorite salad toppings and the Southwestern Yogurt dressing recipe below

For dinner last night I threw together some of my favorite toppings on a salad; grilled chicken, red bell pepper, corn, cheddar cheese, red onion, garbanzo beans, and black beans. I knew I wanted to make this a southwestern salad and had some Greek yogurt in the fridge that was about to go bad and I hate to see food go bad so I mixed up some spices with some lime juice and created what tasted just like store bought southwestern dressing (without all the processed junk).

Here are all the fresh ingredients we used for our salad
