    Herby dressing

    • Vegetarian
    • Gluten Free
    • Preparation time: 5 minutes
    • Cooking time: 0 minutes
    • Total time: 5 minutes

    Serves: 2


    200g (about 8 tbsp) Greek yogurt
    25g pack basil
    ½ x 25g pack chives
    ½ lemon, juice
    1 tsp honey


    1. Put all the ingredients in a blender (if you want a really smooth finish, use a high-speed one such as a NutriBullet). Season, then whizz until combined.

    The beauty of this dressing is that it can be made with any soft herbs you have in the fridge (or even a leaf such as watercress). You can also use different dairy products in place of the yogurt – try crème fraîche or soured cream. Add green chilli for spice, or a little ground cumin for depth.

    How to serve
    Spoon over grain-based or leafy salads, or drizzle over griddled fish, chicken or vegetables.
