Lemony Herb Salad Dressing

Try this simple and flavor-packed dressing that is kid-approved!

All too often store-bought dressings have too many ingredients that we can’t pronounce or are packed with added sugars and saturated fat. If your kids aren’t the biggest fans of a simple olive oil and vinegar dressing, this is a flavorful and nutritious dressing alternative that you can always fall back on.  Watch our Tasty Tuesday Kid Video on Instagram to see how it’s made!




  • 1 cup non-fat or 2-percent Greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar
  • 4 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon pepper, 1 teaspoon thyme, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1 teaspoon fresh sage, chopped, or parsley


  1. Juice lemon.
  2. Wash and mince herbs, by hand or in a food processor.
  3. Mix all remaining ingredients in food processor or blender. Kids love pressing the button and watching everything magically blend together!
  4. Serve over salad, chopped veggies, or use as a mixture for veggie slaws.
