Remember a few weeks ago when I was talking about how much I love kefir? Lately, I’ve been enjoying this probiotic-rich drinkable yogurt as is as a snack. Sprinkle on a little cinnamon and drink up.

I’ve also been loving it lately as a salad dressing.

You might be thinking ,”What the what?”

I totally get that. Hear me out, though. We think it’s totally normal to enjoy creamy salad dressings like ranch, blue cheese, and buttermilk-based dressings. Maybe because I’d already posted a few Greek yogurt dressings earlier this year (this one is my current fave of the bunch), a little lightbulb finally went off in my head. Why add water to thin out my yogurt when I could just start with kefir and skip the water? Duh, Jess. IMG 0506 1024x938 - Easy Kefir Salad Dressing
