Ripe avocado and Greek yogurt add richness to this mayo-free, herb-studded salad dressing.

Smoky Shrimp Salad with Green Goddess Dressing

I’ve been on a fresh tarragon kick lately. So when I wanted to whip up a fresh salad dressing recipe with lots of flavor, I knew I wanted to include this herb along with a few others!

Green Goddess dressing is full of so many delicious ingredients, but I wanted to forgo the typically heavy mayo when coming up with a recipe. I used Stonyfield Greek 0% Fat Plain Yogurt and it worked beautifully! It made it rich and a little tangy without any added fat! Of course, this dressing gets some extra richness from an avocado, but that’s healthy fat that I can feel good about adding.

I paired this thick dressing with a salad topped with some smoked paprika sautéed shrimp, fresh radishes for a bit of peppery crunch, and sun-dried tomatoes. The combo worked really well, and it was a big hit with my family!

Plus, I’m always game to make salads more exciting!

    What a great salad Ashley! I love to sub in Stonyfield yogurt in recipes. In fact, the Stonyfield plant is not far from me, just a few towns over! This is a great use for fresh tarragon.

      That’s so cool! If I ever make it up to their HQ, I’m gonna have to have a delicious meetup with you! 😉
