Asparagus and Tomato Salad with Yogurt-Cheese Dressing

Yogurt, Parmesan cheese and mustard. Unlikely companions you 'd think, but they produce a quite remarkable dressing. Perfect for spooning on asparagus, tomatoes and sliced green onions.

Serves 4 servings

1 (10 ounce) package frozen cut asparagus, thawed
1 tomato, chopped
2 tablespoons thinly sliced green onion
3 tablespoons nonfat plain yogurt
1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon prepared mustard
10 leaves lettuce

  1. Thaw frozen asparagus and drain well. In a medium bowl, combine the asparagus, tomatoes, onions and set aside.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the yogurt, cheese and mustard. Add to the vegetable mixture and toss until well coated. To serve, line salad plates with romaine lettuce leaves and spoon salad on top.

Curried Chicken Salad

Leftover cooked chicken or turkey, crisp apple, and crunchy shredded carrot are wonderful in this tangy salad, which uses a creamy, mildly spiced curried dressing. Serve the salad over greens as a first course, or use it to fill whole-wheat pita pockets for a delicious sandwich.

Number of Servings: 4

chopped prepared mango chutney 3 tbsp —
plain low-fat yogurt 2 tbsp —
fat-free sour cream 2 tbsp —
curry powder 1 tsp —
diced cooked chicken 2 cups —
large tart apple, peeled, cored, and diced 1 —
shredded carrot 1/2 cup —

  1. Combine the chutney, yogurt, sour cream, and curry powder in a medium bowl.
  2. Add the chicken, apple, and carrot; mix well.
  3. Cover and chill at least 1 hour before serving for the flavors to blend.

Creamy Salad Dressing

Blending equal parts fat free or low fat mayonnaise with drained non-fat yogurt is a terrific way to make a creamy yet low fat dressing for potato salad, pasta salad and sandwiches.

Gussy it up with herbs and spices to suit your taste. I like to add a little lime juice and cumin for a southwestern kick, or some curry powder for a taste of India.
