COOKING WITH CLORIS -- SKINNY ITALIAN DRESSING

Just in time for swimsuit season, Cloris has whipped out her Skinny Italian Dressing recipe. Of course, you can use it on a toss salad, but I've found it's yummy mixed into tuna or egg salad instead of mayo.-- AP


SKINNY ITALIAN DRESSING


1 cup plain low-fat yogurt
1/2 a small onion, chopped
2 T. red wine vinegar
1 tsp. sugar
3/4 tsp. Italian seasoning
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. garlic powder


Place all ingredients into a blender. Blend on medium speed for about 15 seconds or until smooth. Chill several hours before serving.


How else might you use Skinny Italian Dressing? Let's hear from you. Post a comment, and your entered in the drawing for a book by this week's Book Club Friday guest author. -- AP

This sounds like something I need to keep on hand to make my nutritionist happy. Thanks Cloris!

Sounds like it would make a good dip to me. I usually use creamy salad dressings as a dip for chicken nuggets, veggies or anything else I like to dip. Yes, I admit it, I'm in my 50's and eat chicken nuggets.
