Creamy Sweet Curry Salad Dressing

I wrote a post on this salad dressing this morning.  Got up at 6am to do it.  Then blogger ate my post.  I was going to rewrite it, but I realized it wasn't that good anyway.  For those of you who like long posts, don't worry.  I've got a doozy of one coming up.  For those who really just skim and go straight to the recipes anyway, you'll like this one.

Here's the gist.  Hummus + yogurt + grapeseed oil + curry powder + fresh parsley + liquid stevia = an awesome way to dress your salads. 

Creamy Sweet Curry Salad Dressing
Print-Friendly Option

1/4 cup lowfat plain yogurt
1/4 cup hummus
1/4 cup grapeseed oil
1 tsp. curry powder
1 tsp. diced fresh parsley
10-20 drops liquid stevia

  1. Whisk together everything but the stevia until completely mixed. 
  2. Stir in water one teaspoon at a time, until you reach your desired consistency.  This will depend on how creamy you like your dressing, but I generally use about 2-4 teaspoons of water. 
  3. Stir in 10 drops of stevia, taste, and add more if desired. 
  4. Use immediately or can keep in fridge for days. 
Makes about 12 tablespoons of dressing. 

If you haven't entered my stevia giveaway yet, you have until February 28th!

Iris, this dressing sounds amazing. I will totally be using this one tonight - have ALL the ingredients! ;0) Yum!
And I like long posts, but I have had total posts disappear before and it literally makes me sick to my stomach. So when I re-write it they are short and sweet, too!

Iris said...

Thanks Kim. I started to rewrite it and then realized it would be a waste of my time. I'm working on another one that deserves more attention... Hope you enjoy the dressing if you make it!

Amy said...

Sounds great! I need to try it!

Kalyn said...

Don't know if it would have worked in this case, but sometimes when a post disappears you can use the "back" button on your browser and get back to where it's open. Just thought I would tell you that in case you hadn't tried it.

Iris said...

Thanks Kalyn. I didn't try it, and definitely will next time (since I'm sure there will be a next time)!

Curry is one of my favorites!

I will definitely put this on my list to try when salads make a return to my menu planning. :)

This looks great Iris (even though I've never had curry in my life, can you believe that?). I love the fact that there's no vinegar in this recipe, not enough vinegar-free condiments out there!

PS. Thanks for adding me to your blog roll, I'm feeling special! :-D

Blogger ate my chocolate post over the weekend too! Fortunately, my boyfriend is a computer god and he found it for me!

I get SO bored eating nooch and evoo on all my salads... I LOVE dressing recipes!!! Thank you!

Curry is the best! IDK if you can get it in Seattle, but Gopal makes curry nori sticks that are AMAZING little snacks, and very easy to digest. (If you can have almonds and sunflower seeds?)

Have a great weekend!

Brian said...

This looks pretty good. I never would have thought to use hummus in a salad dressing.

Alisa said...

This dressing looks delicious,I love hummus and I cant wait to try this.I came across your site from the foodieblogroll and I'd love to guide Foodista readers to your site. I hope you could add this hummus widget at the end of this post so we could add you in our list of food bloggers who blogged about recipes with hummus,Thanks!

Hi Iris--

Looks great! And thanks for submitting this to the SOS Challenge--nice to see a non-dessert recipe. :) The guidelines ask you to also include a link to the SOS page on this page--would you mind adding one? Thanks!

Iris said...

Linked up, Ricki! Sorry it's not vegan...totally forgot about that part of the guidelines! said...

Hi Iris,

Continuing to LOVE your site and passing along the STYLISH BLOGGER AWARD to you! Check out the post on to see what I've written up about you and how to pass it along.

Hope you're doing well out there,

Iris said...

Thank you Jacqueline! Going to check it out now!

This dressing sounds fantastic! It sounds like it could hold its own on heartier greens like spinach, too. Thanks for sharing.

Sandra said...

That sounds fantastic! I love your beautiful photos!

Mary said...

If I could find a non-dairy yogurt that tasted worth a dang, I would attempt this as it looks very appetizing. But, so far, all the yogurts my daughter has tried, she hasn't cared for them.

Iris said...

@Mary, I don't do a lot of coconut, but I wondered if this would work with a smaller amount of coconut cream to replace the yogurt. Might be an idea to try if your daughter likes coconut.
