Store bought salad dressings are often high in fat and loaded with additives. If you’re eating salads for the health benefits, a fat-laden dressing bogged down with mysterious ingredients can foil your best efforts.

Modern Market Eatery’s creative culinary director Josh Chesterson offers a healthy herb yogurt dressing used on the restaurant’s Mediterranean grass-fed steak bowl. “This is such a great dressing to make if you have a small herb garden. The fresher the herbs, the better the flavor profile of the yogurt,” Chesterson says.

And the best part? It only has 25 calories in a 4 oz. serving.

Herb Yogurt Dressing


  • 2 cups nonfat Greek yogurt
  • 2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp. lemon juice, fresh
  • ½ tsp. garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp. honey
  • 2 tbsp. fresh dill, chipped
  • 1 tbsp. fresh mint, chopped
  • 1 tsp. dry oregano (can use fresh)
  • 1 tsp. salt and pepper (or to taste)


Place all ingredients in a bowl and mix together until well combined. You can also place into a food processor or blender to mix, but be careful not to over blend as it will turn the sauce green and you will lose all the beautiful flecks of herbs in the yogurt.
