Hi Readers! It's been a while and for that I apologize, but life is getting back to its old routine of school, work and more.
I'm off and running (literally) with new lighter, healthier ideas these days as I am hoping to take the weight I've wanted to lose for a few years off...finally. So in honor of that, I'm posting a recipe for a yummy dressing I made up tonight. It's kind of like a tzatziki, but thinner and with no cucumbers (although, the dressing on cucumbers is dynamite).
Greek Yogurt Dressing
1/2 cup nonfat Greek-style yogurt (I used Voskos - delicious and nothing but milk and active cultures)
2 tbsp. fresh-squeezed lemon juice
1 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil (cuts the acidity and gives the dressing a nice "mouth-feel")
1 clove garlic (minced or pressed)
2 tsp. fresh chopped chives
1-2 tbsp. non or low-fat milk (to thin out as needed)
Salt and pepper to taste
Mix all the ingredients in a container and serve with your favorite mixed greens and veggies.
I paired this dressing up with my standard salad of romaine, red bell pepper, cucumber, and red onion. You could definitely omit the milk and keep it thicker if using as a dip. Oh, the possibilities! It was completely delicious and totally low fat. To borrow a term from a friend of mine, you could definitely call this dressing "awesomesauce." Enjoy!
