Herbed Blue Cheese Dressing

Blue cheese dip from a bottle is bad news as far as salt and saturated fat are concerned. That doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy it from time to time: using a base of plain, non-fat Greek yogurt makes a world of difference to the nutritional impact.

Pro tip: Refrigerating the dressing for at least an hour is absolutely essential to give the flavors time to meld.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups plain, non-fat Greek yogurt
  • ⅓ cup water
  • 1 tsp. lemon juice
  • 3 Tbsp. blue cheese, crumbled
  • ¼ tsp. garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp. pepper
  • 3 Tbsp. finely chopped fresh chives
  • 2 Tbsp. finely chopped parsley
  • 1 tsp. fresh thyme

Directions

  1. Stir all ingredients together, cover, and refrigerate for at least an hour to allow the flavors to meld.
