Yogurt Lime Dressing for Savory Salads

It’s quite clear that the Indian summer has surprised us once again in Goa. We live in denial that the heat is going to hit us sooner or later and when the day comes, we act surprised and of course annoyed. So, here I am sitting writing this while feeling all sticky and uncomfortable – even after having had 3 cold showers today! –  wondering if the weather was getting hotter every year that passed.

At the same time I am enjoying once again my green simple ice berg salad with a cooling yogurt lime dressing. The salad makes it all tolerable and for a split second, while the dressing is unfolding it’s purpose in my mouth, I actually forget the annoying weather conditions in Goa. I am honestly about to stop writing this and instead thinking of going into the kitchen and prepare more veggies, so that I can cover them with another layer of my beloved yogurt lime dressing!

I know I am not the only person in the world right now suffering in the heat wave so sharing with you this yogurt lime dressing is a must. Even if you don’t feel necessarily hot in your part of the world, you can go ahead and enjoy a salad with the dressing. I like to use crisp and fresh ice berg salad leafs, tomato, corn and I try to add fresh prawns. It just makes it all the more irresistible.

Of course I leave you the liberty once again to play around with the salad ingredients. You could also add cooked french beans (or other beans), potato, cauliflower or broccoli, or raw ingredients such as lettuce, carrot, cucumber, beets and kohlrabi.

If you are looking for other creamy, more filling salad dressing ideas then check out the creamy mustard dressing and the thousand island dressing for some inspiration. In the meanwhile I will try getting used to the heat so that I can cook up something delicious soon again for you!

This is a really nice dressing! I love yogurt and I love lime, but haven’t made a salad dressing like this before. But I will, I will. ;-) Thanks for this.

I love yogurt based dressings and this one with lime sounds very flavourful, particularly with the shrimp. I hope your summer heat doesn’t get too out of control, we’re still experiencing winter over in Toronto, Canada and although the snow has begun to melt, it still has some time to go. I can tell you one thing, we won’t be complaining about the heat this year, we’ve had so much cold this past winter that I simply cannot warm my fingers and toes enough! Please send some of your heat our way!

What a simple and delicious light dressing. It’s a must try. We had a miserable freezing cold winter… I am afraid we will have a hot and unbearable summer here. I can understand the need for 3 cold showers. :)
