Sweet and Creamy Tarragon Salad Dressing

Please share if you love it!

I think tarragon is one of those herbs that doesn’t get it’s due. It has a sweet, slightly licorice flavor, that is wonderful in a healthy creamy salad dressing.

I want to make salad dressings on the lighter side, so I used plain yogurt to give my dressing that creamy texture. I think the slightly tart flavor of plain yogurt worked well with my sweet tarragon. Give it a try for a nice alternative to the usual Ranch dressing.

My dressing topped a combination of salad ingredients that included spinach, arugula, carrots, radishes and celery. You know I can’t resist a colorful salad!

Happy cooking!

    I love mixing together yogurt and mayo to create a healthier, lower-fat creamy dressing too! It works great for healthifying traditional coleslaw and can also serve as a veggie dip or a sandwich spread.

      I agree. I have a yogurt maker, so I make my own. It’s so easy to do, and a big time saver. Not to mention that I don’t have to recycle all those containers!

    What a nice, light salad dressing! I really enjoy tarragon in dishes, although it is not always easy to find. I buy it when I do see it, so I will keep your dressing in mind!

      Considering that we’ve sold our house and the house we wanted to buy has become a short sale, you might just see me in Florida since I don’t currently have a home. :)

    wow this looks so good! I love trying out new salad dressings because I tend to get bored of them pretty fast.
