Spinach & Romaine Salad w/ Creamy Garden Fresh Dressing

This flavorful and fresh dressing elevates this green salad to something special. The Garden Fresh Gremolata olive oil is infused with parsley, garlic and mint, which complements the flavor of the lemon balsamic vinegar. The olive oil and balsamic vinegar are blended with Greek yogurt to create a creamy dressing with less fat than a traditional mayonnaise-based dressing. You could also use the dressing as a dip for raw vegetables or whole grain pita wedges.
