A blog by ordinary people about living an extraordinary life
Week one of salads for dinner is done, and while I cannot yet report that I have seen dramatic changes in the way I feel, I can report that the week was a success. In addition to trying out some new salad ideas, we created a salad dressing that is a hit. This week we served the dressing with a “grilled” romaine salad (to grill the lettuce without a grill, I drizzle some olive oil over it and broil it for a couple minutes, just to get a little char on the lettuce). We plan on trying it on a potato dish I am making next week, so I will let know how it turns out.
The recipe below calls for sour cream, but I also made this dressing with plain Greek yogurt. The Greek yogurt gave the dressing a bit more tang, so if you want to save on fat and calories but not the Greek yogurt taste, you can also use low fat sour cream.
Blend in food processor until smooth. If the dressing is a bit thick, you can thin it out with a tablespoon of water. Serve over salad. I think it would also work as a nice vegetable dip.
