I threw out all the creamy dressings in our house a few months ago when I decided to start exercising and losing weight for real. None of that fake "oh I'd love to lose some weight, now excuse me while I sit on the couch and eat bonbons". I've never eaten bonbons but I bet they are tasty. Anyway, a few weeks ago I was craving some salad with blue cheese dressing. Weird, I know, but also true.
Of course, a quick little search told me that others had also had this problem and you could actually make a light blue cheese dressing that, while missing the mark a little bit, was still delightfully tasty and very close to the real thing. And there you have it, a light blue cheese dressing was available and after I had it that one time, my craving went away. Now if we could only figure out a similar fix for ice cream.
Light Blue Cheese Dressing (adapted from SkinnyTaste)
Serves: 8 (1 cup dressing)
1/2 cup blue cheese
6 ounces fat-free greek yogurt
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon white vinegar
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
In a small bowl, combine blue cheese, yogurt, lemon juice, vinegar, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Stir until the mixture is uniform but the blue cheese is still chunky. Serve immediately.
