Cool, creamy yogurt, warm southwestern spices and a splash of lime juice tantalize your taste buds. This thick, creamy dressing compliments anything to which you’d like to add a bit of zip – tossed salad, grilled fish or chicken, tacos, burritos, wraps or bowls, potato salad or coleslaw. Check out the salad idea listed following the dressing recipe.

Use either a mild or spicier chili powder, whatever your preference. And plan ahead just a bit – after mixing all of the ingredients, give the flavors at least 30 minutes to blend for best results.
