Yogo-Mayo Dressing

Yogo-Mayo Dressing is the new Green Goddess dressing!

Do you remember Green Goddess dressing?

So, I may be dating myself but, I think it was popular in the 70’s and 80’s. Anyway, it was good and this is a healthy version of the dressing as I remember it.

You probably know how I feel about probiotics by now – but, if not, let me tell you! Probiotics are beneficial bacteria for your gut health. Gut disbyosis is a common problem among our generation primarily because of the processed foods eaten. They affect the balance of the bacterial in our gut and it becomes out of whack – the “bad” bacteria become predominant occupants and this may cause a host of physical and even psychological problems. Available from my affiliate partner, Gut and Psychology Syndrome by Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride  deals with gut disbyosis in detail and I highly recommend it!

But, what does this have to do with Yogo-Mayo Dressing?

Yogo-Mayo Dressing not only tastes great but it has the added advantage of yogurt as an ingredient. Yogurt is a probiotic meaning that it contains beneficial bacteria which is good for your intestinal health. I love it when I can sneak probiotics into a meal without detection!!

Be sure to make Yogo-Mayo dressing ahead and refrigerate it so the ingredients meld their flavors.

In the following recipe, I have linked to products from my affiliate partners that I personally use and recommend.

Yogo-Mayo Dressing


  • 1/2 c mayonnaise  (Basic or Lacto-Fermented)                
  • 1/4 tsp salt (where to buy REAL salt)
  • 1/4 c yogurt (where to buy starter)                                        
  • 1/2 tsp basil 
  • 1/4 c parsley                                          
  • 1 clove garlic, minced or 1/8 tsp garlic
  • 2 tsp raw apple cider vinegar

Blend all the ingredients together except the mayonnaise. I use the food processor and it works very well.

Add the mayonnaise and blend well.

Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before serving.

  3. This looks really good! I just started adding in a very small amount of yogurt into my diet (I’ve been working on healing a dairy intolerance). I’ll definitely be giving this a try once I’ve increased my yogurt consumption a bit more.

    Thanks for sharing this at Fill Those Jars Friday!

  4. I make a similar dressing, using dill instead of parsley and lemon juice instead of vinegar. yo-mayo makes such a wonderful salad dressing.
