On various holidays to Germany, (not very Mediterranean but stick with me), I’ve always been impressed at the variety of dressings they have to help jazz up a basic bit of salad.

One of my favorites has always been a slightly sweet herby yoghurt based dressing and although it is possible to re-create the dressing by purchasing what the Germans call a packet of ‘Fix’ to add to natural yoghurt, inevitably it has quite a lot of sugar in it – boo.

I therefore set to in my kitchen today, and came up with a no sugar, (yay), low calorie, (double yay), version of it and am sharing it in the hope it might be of help to anyone else who might be looking for a way to make lettuce a bit more interesting.

Hope you enjoy and if you do, please leave a comment below!


• 40 grams natural yoghurt, (the calorie count I've given is based on using natural Skyr).
• 0.5 teaspoon of dried dill.
• 0.5 teaspoon of dried parsley
• Approx 1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives
• Sweetener of choice, (I use Erythritol because it has no bitter aftertaste but use whatever sweetener you normally use). Whatever you use, you’re aiming for the sweetness of approximately ½ teaspoon of conventional sugar.
• Squeeze of Lemon Juice.
• Possibly a touch of salt depending upon your taste.
• 1 - 2 tablespoons of water to thin down the consistency of the yoghurt - the amount you use depends upon how runny you like your salad dressing.


• Weigh out the yoghurt in to a bowl.
• Chuck all the ingredients in on top of the yoghurt.
• Mix well together and allow the sweetener to dissolve if you're using a granulated one.
• Add salt to personal taste and then thin down the yoghurt with water to reach the consistency you want.
• Pour over salad and then turn salad over in the dressing to coat the leaves.
• Tuck in, happy in the knowledge that your calorie halo will still be intact.

    This was much taster than I thought it would be! I made a double portion so I would have it ready made to use. Thanks for that Hush.
