The base of the recipe uses a yogurt OR mayonnaise substitute. Use an unsweetened/plain milk-free yogurt alternative like cultured soy or coconut milk; or use an egg-free soy-based mayo such as Vegenaise®.
Pour the liquid in slowly while whisking all of the ingredients together. If making a dip, you will use less liquid (if any at all) than you would use to make dressing. If you add too much liquid, just add more of the base until you get the right consistency.
“Yogurt” tends to be runnier than “mayo”, so if you are using a yogurt alternative for this base, you will need less liquid (milk alternative) for this recipe.
If you are using a safe mayo, I recommend using the reduced-calorie version because the mayo is much higher in fat than yogurt.
This recipe is very forgiving, and you can use more Mrs. Dash for flavoring if you want a stronger flavor.
Store in the refrigerator in an air-tight container and it will keep for about a week.
