"This tangy lemony dressing makes a creamy addition to salads or is great drizzled over grilled fish. Try it over a butter lettuce, grape tomatoes, and English cucumber salad. Try substituting plain Greek yogurt for the sour cream."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

Yum! I added an extra splash of lemon juice and used a little less greek yogurt than called for. Delish! Second time around I added a splash of red wine vinegar (just because I love it) and it was a great addition too!
I used plain yogurt and added either oregano or thyme. It goes without saying, I added extra garlic. Very tasty!
I've tried several lemon dressing and this is by far the BEST!! THanks!
I changed this recipe to make it healthier, and it was still delicious. I didn't add salt, I only used 1 tbs EVOO and I used 1/2 cup of plain non-fat regular yogurt(not greek)instead of sour cream. This cut the fat by 70% and the consistency stayed the same since regular fat-free yogurt is runnier than sour cream, thus less oil is necessary. I served right away, without refrigerating.
I'm a lemon lover---that's for sure. I did like this, but it was missing something when I used it on my salad tonight. I added a little balsamic vinegar to my salad, and that made this very good, so I'm thinking that for a salad it needed just a very very little bit of sweetness--maybe honey or a pinch of sugar--just to cut that acid. If I try this tomorrow and I have a different take on it, I'll come back and edit my opinion. I'll be glad to try this on fish!
My new favorite dressing! I made a few changes, the most significant one being the amount of garlic: even though I usually double it in everything, I only used 1 clove after trying it with 3 and burping garlicky for 2 days. Also, I use 3/4 cup fat free yogurt to 1/4 cup olive oil to reduce fat because, trust me, this salad dressing is so delicious you will want to slather your veggies in it!!
This is so fabulous!! I am allergic to sour cream and yogurt, so substitued organic mayonnaise. It seemed too tart, so I added about 2t. sugar while blending. PERFECT!!! I have been buying EXPENSIVE salad dressing that is not as good as this!! Definitely a repeatable dressing!
I just tried it and its great!!!
