Adapted from Mark Bittman's recipe on


This versatile, super-quick dressing is great because of its many variations. Instead of plain yogurt, use sour cream, mayonnaise, cream, or puréed soft tofu. Make it with a combination of parsley and tarragon one day, and the next use basil.


1⁄3 colive oil (extra virgin)
3 Twhite wine vinegar (plus more as needed)
3 Tplain yogurt (or sour cream, mayonnaise, puréed soft tofu, or cream)
3⁄4 cfresh herbs (use tender herbs like parsley, tarragon, chervil, or basil)
1 clvgarlic
  salt (to taste)
  black pepper (to taste)


Place all the ingredients in a blender, and process for 30 seconds, until a creamy emulsion forms. Taste, and add vinegar a teaspoon at a time until it's to your liking. The dressing will be very thick: add water a tablespoon at a time to reach desired consistency. Adjust the seasoning if needed, and serve.
