Light and Refreshing Homemade Yogurt Mayonnaise

Light and Refreshing Homemade Yogurt Mayonnaise

If you don't like the richness or flavor of regular mayonnaise, or if you're watching your calories, this dressing is a must! It's easy, light and still rich in flavor!

Ingredients: An easy-to-make amount

Drained yogurt
50 g
10 g (the amount I like. Please adjust to your taste.)
Salt and pepper
To taste, optional (I don't add any)


1. Drain the yogurt using the method of your choice. I use the method described in Recipe ID: 555666 by Cookpad user Kayonamama-san. 500 g of yogurt becomes 215 g of drained yogurt.
2. Mix the drained yogurt, mayonnaise, and salt and pepper to taste together, and it's done!
3. What's left over a week later. It hasn't become watery at all.

Story Behind this Recipe

I don't like mayonnaise, and couldn't eat it at all until about 3 years ago. So I tried alternate versions that I could eat, and came to this recipe.
I couldn't even eat potato salad or kabocha squash salad before, so I used to mix mayonnaise with yogurt.
You can make this in large amounts to keep in stock, as I describe in Steps 3 and 4.
