I love the tang of goat cheese and I love creamy dressing, but usually the creamy dressings have a lot of fat or are the low fat options are so full of fake fat ingredients that the taste is horrible. This recipe is the exception and I am so happy. Tangy, low in fat, all natural ingredients, and super creamy.
I found this recipe on a food blog and I am sorry I can not remember which one or I would give it credit. I tweeked it a little and found that there are a lot of variations that are super tasty. Not only do I put goat cheese dressing on salads, I put in on burgers, sandwiches, and even use it as a dip.
1 oz. goat cheese
2 T. buttermilk (Note: a lot of people do not know that buttermilk is low in fat and calorie. Use it in a lot of different things.)
3T. Greek style yogurt (Note: You can purchase your fat content according to your preference. They come in full fat to 0% fat.)
1/2 t. white vinegar
1t. lemon juice
lots of pepper
salt to taste
couple dribbles of sesame oil (Note: love to have this always on hand in my fridge.)
Mix all together and save in fridge for a variety of things. Thin out with lemon if you want it runner and use less if you want it super thick.
Variation 1: Use only lemon juice (Omit vinegar) and add chopped dill for poached salmon or baked potato.
Variation 2: Use lime in place of lemon and vinegar. Add some chopped cilantro and chili powder. ( I used a adobo chili powder I had in the pantry.) This is delicious with sweet potato fries
Variation 3: Use balsamic vinegar instead of lemon and vinegar and add some sugar. Teaspoon at a time and make a delicious dipping sauce for strawberries.
Variation 4: Replace blue cheese for the goat cheese and you have low fat blue cheese dressing.
Just have fun with this recipe and indulge. It won’t hurt. Now I have to go have the bacon, lettece, and tomato sandwich I have been dreaming about. Sour dough bread toasted with my goat cheese dressing instead of mayo. Hey, I am cutting some calories!
