    This looks yummy and the best part is a dressing that does not feature mayonnaise! I have never been a mayonnaise kinda girl and the greek yogurt sounds so much healthier and tastier too. Thanks for sharing!

    Is it possible to get a printer version of this recipe. It took 6 pieces of paper to print this recipe. Or am I missing something somewhere? Looks wonderful!

      Hi Priscilla!
      Rather than printing the recipe straight from the webpage copy and paste the text/images into a Word document. You can size the images down in the Word doc. If you’d rather not include the images, just copy and paste the ingredients and directions text at the top into a Word doc. That will print out “recipe card” size. 🙂

    Ooh, I need to make this!! I am trying to eat healthier and this looks like a winner here! My husband doesn’t like mayo either, and Greek yogurt would be a perfect substitute.
