You can make great dressings at home in just a few minutes and you know exactly what is in them.
Next time you see a Meyer lemon in the store try it - it is a cross between a Mandarin orange and a lemon.
You will need:
- 2 tbsp zero fat plain yogurt (I used heaping tbsps)
- 1 tsp Dijon mustard
- 1/2 Meyer lemon zested fine
- 1/2 Meyer lemon juiced
- 1 tbsp fresh chives- chopped fine
- 1-2 tbsp good quality olive oil
- 1 tbsp honey.
In a small bowl add yogurt, mustard, zest from half a Meyer lemon, juice from the lemon, chopped chives, olive oil and honey. Whisk and use or store in a small air tight container.
Can be stored in the fridge for a few days.
It was great on a salad of mixed greens with some seeds sprinkled over top and
also on some finely chopped cabbage or cabbage and a small carrot in a food processor. It makes a great coleslaw dressing.
