Chipotle Salad Dressing

Creamy with a kick! This dressing works great on salads, sandwiches, or as a dip.
Prep Time5 minutes
Course: sauce


  • High power blender


  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup mayo
  • 1 chipotle pepper in adobo sauce See Note 1
  • 1 tsp lime juice


  • Combine ingredients in a high power blender and blend until smooth. Enjoy on a salad, on a sandwich or as a dip!


  1. Chipotle peppers in adobo will be canned. You can add more if more spice is desired! 

There’s nothing I love more than something that tastes amazing and is so easy. It just feels like a life hack! This Chipotle Salad Dressing is just that. Add the 4 ingredients to the blender on high speed and DONE!

If you’ve ever had an awesome southwest salad out or have been craving a homemade version of the Chipotle Chicken Avocado Melt from Panera, this is the key sauce that pulls all of the other at home ingredients together into a delicious meal.

Greek Yogurt: Our first creamy ingredient! You could do all mayo if you prefer, but the Greek yogurt adds some extra flavor that goes well with the lime. And it adds a bit of protein!

Mayo: Our other creamy ingredient to ground the flavor.

Chipotle Pepper in Adobo Sauce: This is our star of the recipe and adds the kick and flavor we’re looking for in a chipotle sauce. You’ll find the chipotle peppers in adobo sauce canned with the other authentic cultural foods in the grocery store.

Lime Juice: To add more zesty flavor, we definitely want to have the lime juice. No optional ingredients in this recipe!

So obviously we just have the sauce here and even though I’m calling it a salad dressing, it can be used in multiple ways

  • Add to a sandwich
  • Use as a dip for veggies or chips
  • Salad dressing for southwest salad
  • Salad dressing for taco salad
  • Sauce for tacos

You get the idea! And even though we will need a meal to go with this of course, the sauce really is what will elevates the flavor of these dishes.

  • Diet culture doesn’t get to claim all “healthy” foods. Aka you can use Greek yogurt for gentle nutrition without dieting/restricting (if that’s a step you’re ready for)
  • Think about how you can get on the same team as your body instead of working against it
