Smoky, Spicy and Sweet, this yogurt based accompaniment can be used both as a dip and a salad dressing. Versatile is the best word to describe this dressing: we use it on summer salads, to go with poultry, for various fritters and even as a dip for tortilla crisps. This Chipotle Yogurt Dressing uses six very important ingredients and each of them plays a very important role in the multi-layer flavours of this gorgeous dressing.
This is a yogurt based dressing/ dip. We typically use full-fat Greek style yogurt. As a result, the dressing has a more creamy texture and is less runny. Nonetheless, any plain, full-fat or low-fat, yoghurt won’t affect the flavour too much. We’ve tested it with soya and coconut based vegan alternative and it worked great too.
Chipotle paste and smoked paprika are essential to create a flavour-packed dressing. Out of all the chilli pastes we’ve ever tried, chipotle has become a solid favourite of ours. The depth and layers of flavour in this chilli paste, really makes the dressing taste incredible.
With the sourness of lime juice and the distinctive sweetness of honey, this dressing caters for everyone. Sweet, sour and spicy in flavour, creamy in texture and with refreshing zingy aftertaste, this Chipotle Yogurt Dressing won’t leave anyone indifferent.
We last had it with our Crispy Courgette Fritters.
