Yogurt mayonnaise is a low calorie, healthy alternative to mayonnaise. Often it's a combination of yogurt and mayonnaise... but you can leave the mayo out if you like. In less than 10 minutes, whip together a delicious dressing, spread or dip.
Makes about 1-1/4 cups (310 ml)

Tip: To use as a spread, substitute 1 cup Greek yogurt or yogurt cheese for regular yogurt.
Combine all ingredients, except vegetable oil, in a blender jar. Add oil slowly while blending at moderate speed. Use as a salad dressing.
