Cilantro Lime Dressing

Ah, a zesty salad dressing. Chobani greek yogurt serves as a phenomenal (and incredibly healthy) base for thick salad dressings. The cilantro is fresh and the lime juice adds a terrific zing to the dressing. What you have here is a powerful flavor combination of green goodness. I served this over my shrimp salad one night and continued to use it to dress up my salads throughout the following week.

Cilantro Lime Dressing

  • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup chobani 0% plain yogurt
  • 1 tbsp lime juice
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tbsp white vinegar
  • 1 bunch fresh cilantro, roughly chopped
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  1. Place all ingredients in a food processor or blender and puree until smooth.
  2. Continue to add olive oil 1 tbsp at a time as necessary to create a smooth finish.

    It could be highly hassle-free to look on the web given that it's not essential to disk drive towards different retail outlets near metropolis.

Curious can you estimate the calories per serving which is usually 2 tbsp.

Thanks :)

Amanda, This is not exact, but based simply on the liquid ingredients - Chobani @ 66 calories per 4 ounces, White Vinegar @ 0 calories and EVOO @ roughly 900-1000 calories per 1/2 a cup and a rough calculation of the dry ingredients, I would say there are approximately 100 calories per 2 tbsp of dressing (and that is probably an over-estimate). Don't hold me to that because everyone uses different products but if you wanted to gauge yourself, that's what I would base it off. Take a look at the Chobani Kitchen website and look at the nutrition info for some of their salad dressings. I think you will find their dressings are comparable and tend to have anywhere from 20-80 calories. I hope that helps. Ashley

I just recently purchased Avocado Oil. I think I want to try that insead of Olive oil! What do you think?

February 24, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterDonene

Unless you're eating it like ice cream, does it matter how many calories it is if everything in there is good for you?

March 1, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterNina

I just made this, and it is so delicious I was licking the bowl of the food processor. Thank you!

March 23, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterTracy

I was looking for a quick salad dressing to go along with some grilled cilantro lime chicken and found yours - LOVED IT! My kids went nuts over it too - win, win! I posted it on my blog and linked it back to you - hope that's okay.

Wow! I am in love! My affair with cilantro has been growing since we see eachother so often! But now, baby every day! This dressing is amazing, and my kids will even dunk their veggies in it!

August 27, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterSarah

I love love love this recipe! I add 2 tbsp of fresh squeezed lime juice and it adds a lot of zest to it. :)
Great for pouring over baked chicken or eating with steak as well.

November 16, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterEsther Kim

Thank you for this delish recipe! My whole family loved it! I also am a fan of plain greek yogurt. I rarely ever
buy sour cream anymore.

December 6, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterMelissa

How long do you think this would keep in the fridge? Thanks!

January 20, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterLaura

This is an amazing recipe. Make it yesterday and it is very delicious. Thank you.

May 8, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterDeborah Arseneault

Do you at all know how long this dressing will keep after you make it? It sounds so delicious. Thanks for posting it!

May 15, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterJessie

Jessie,
Im not sure the complete shelf life of this. I made it and used it over a span of 2 weeks (and obviously left it in my fridge during that time). It probably makes a difference which type of container you store it in as well. Hope this helps! -Ashley

Yum! I just made this and drizzled it on a veggie burrito. I doubled the lime amount, cause I lke a lot of zing. Thanks for sharing.

June 10, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterJanine

I added honey (about 3 tablespoons) to this, added more lime juice and omitted the vinegar. It was DELICIOUS! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

June 10, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterJessie

Thank you for sharing this recipe. It's delicious. I do have a question on the olive oil. You said to put in 1/3 cup, and then 1T. at a time until a smooth finish. Can you give us some idea of how much additional oil you usually add? Thanks.

June 22, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterHeidi

Heidi I normally add 1-2 Tbsp more. Glad you enjoyed this recipe.

The honey sounds like a great addition!

Fine by me! Glad you loved the recipe!

Sounds WONDERFUL, we are having Tacos TONIGHT with this!

How was it?

Do you think it would work to sub out the chobani for a dairy free option? My kids are allergic to dairy. :( Has anyone tried that already?

July 2, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterSandy

I had the same question as Sandy. Could we use the dairy free yogurt instead? There are a couple I buy that are soy based "Greek style" yogurts.
