Creamy Cilantro Salad Dressing

I made a mixed greens salad with bell peppers, black beans, avocado, and shrimp mixed in. I decided to try my hand at a creamy dressing to go on it, and I made Greek yogurt the base and cilantro the flavoring. I apologize for not having a picture of the dressing itself on this post. The concoction I made included apple cider vinegar, which gave it an unappealing color. With white vinegar, the results will be better and more attractive. 🙂

Ingredients:

1TBS plain Greek yogurt

1TSP white vinegar

2TSP minced cilantro

1TSP kosher salt

1/2TSP chili powder

1/2TSP water

Mix your Greek yogurt, vinegar, and water first, then fold in the cilantro and other seasonings. The vinegar can probably be swapped out for fresh lime juice, achieving the same effect. I plan to try this next.

For added kick, sprinkle in some cayenne pepper, or a minced slice of jalapeño.
