Piimä Ranch Dressing



  • 1-1/2 cup piimä yogurt*, strained for 2 to 4 hours
  • 1 cucumber, finely chopped
  • 4 teaspoons olive oil
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 garlic cloves, peeled and minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh dill or 1-1/2 teaspoon dried dill
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons parsley
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground pepper


Blend all ingredients together and chill for several hours to fully develop the flavor prior to serving.

*While the mild flavor of piimä makes a faboulous base for this dressing recipe, if you do not have piimä on hand, another yogurt variety may be substituted.
