Roasted Salmon with Creamy Herb Yogurt Sauce

Salmon is one of my favorite things to cook during the week for easy weeknight dinners. It roasts in less than 20 minutes, has so many health benefits and can take on lots of different flavors. Lately, I always have Dannon® whole milk yogurt in my fridge because it is versatile and I can use it in many different recipes! I love to put it in smoothies, use it in baked goods and make delicious creamy dressings and sauces with it! Sicily also is a huge fan of this stuff; she eats it plain out of the jug! Tonight for dinner I am making a Roasted Salmon with Creamy Herb Yogurt Sauce. This recipe is so simple and can be on the dinner table in under 30 minutes. I roast the salmon, make the sauce and then serve everything with some roasted veggies and rice. The sauce adds such a delicious topping to the salmon and really elevates this dish. Let me know if you make it! **Target Circle is currently offering all members 10% off from 12-6 through 12-19
