Pete’s perfect dressing

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.



  • 1/4 cup of mayo
  • 1/4 cup of sour cream
  • 1/4 cup of fresh chopped parsley
  • juice of 1/2 a lemon
  • dash of dried tarragon
  • salt
  • pepper

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.
