Low Fat Blue Cheese Dressing....



 
Summer is winding down and the tomatoes are ripening on the vines faster than you can pick them. There is a bowl of heirloom cherry tomatoes on my kitchen counter just waiting to be eaten. The heirlooms seemed to be screaming for a blue cheese dressing.  Here is my low fat version of  blue cheese dressing that I think you will love.  
  • 1/2 cup blue cheese(crumbled up)
  • 6 oz. fat free Greek yogurt
  • 1 tbsp. light sour cream
  • 1 tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. rice wine vinegar
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp. chopped chives
  • salt and lots of freshly ground black pepper
Mix all the above ingredients in a bowl and spoon over your favorite salad.

  11. i've never made it either... and it's so simple and so tasty... and I happen to have a beautiful piece of blue in the fridge... a good way to pack a lot of flavour onto a plain salad... and look at those lovely vine toms... the taste of summers end indeed!

  12. My husband's one true weakness, blue cheese dressing. This salad looks delicious, and you are spot on, tomatoes are ripening faster than we know what to do with them. I confess my chickens are indulging in the late tomato harvest too!
