Back in September fellow food blogger, Christine Pittman launched TheCookful.com website. The Cookful.com is a contributor based site that delves into every aspect of a topic, helping readers cook and eat better. Included with each topic are how to's, facts and tons of recipes.
Today, I have teamed up with TheCookful.com and Stonyfield Yogurt to share a delicious yogurt based salad dressing. I love creamy dressings as much as the next person, but what I don't love is all the fat and calories that come along with it. Substituting Greek yogurt for mayonnaise is all I did to make this healthier version of my favorite Creamy Italian dressing. The yogurt gives the dressing a nice tang, and makes going back for seconds, almost guilt-free.

Greek Yogurt Creamy Italian Dressing
1 cup Greek Yogurt (full fat)
2 teaspoons dried oregano
2 teaspoons dried basil
2 teaspoons garlic powder
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
Whisk together all of the ingredients except the yogurt & vinegar. Add the yogurt and whisk until combined. Add the vinegar a little at a time to reach desired taste and texture.
Refrigerate in a sealed jar for up to 3 days.
