The Pantry Challenge has certainly stirred some creative juices in me – at least most days. Thanks to great produce sales, our family has been eating lots of fresh fruits and veggies. Truth be told, my kids don’t really care for cooked vegetables, so we eat a lot of salads and veggies and dip. Having a yummy dip or dressing is a great way for my family to enjoy more vegetables than we normally would.

This recipe for yogurt-dill dressing was actually born out of our desire to treat our Kansas friends to Fish Tacos. I wanted to have the white sauce that I’ve enjoyed when we’ve eaten fish tacos at restaurants. An internet search produced several different variations, which of course, I’ve tweaked. This dressing was great on tacos, a yummy sidekick for pizza, delicious with grilled steak and fresh pita bread sandwiches, and it also works as a salad dressing.

If you try it on something else, I’d love to know what!

    We LOVE fish tacos. When I first started making them it was with shredded tortilla crusted tilapia from Costco. Now we use all sorts of fish, toppings, etc.

    I just mixed up your Yogurt-Dill dressing and my mind is spinning wildly thinking of all of the things I can use this heavenly dressing on or in! Where has this dressing been all my life? A winner for sure and I can’t wait to try it on my first attempt at fish tacos tonight.

    Thanks for this great recipe and a new addition to the dinner repertoire.

    Do you use plain yogurt or plain GREEK yogurt? Can’t wait to try fish tacos with this, sounds delish!


    • Jessica says

      I don’t use Greek yogurt often. Either should work, though.
