Substitutions & Variations
Want to make a few changes? Here are some optional substitutions.
- Herbs - you can use fresh dill instead of dried dill if you'd prefer. I'd recommend using a tablespoon of finely chopped fresh dill.
- Yogurt - if mayo flavor is important for you, substitute the yogurt for light mayo. Use an equal amount. You can also substitute the Greek yogurt for plain yogurt as well.
- Lemon - if you want a little zippy citrus flavor, add in a few teaspoons of freshly squeezed lemon juice.
You can save this dressing in a mason jar or other airtight container for up to 2 weeks in the refrigerator.
