Lemony Yogurt Dressing

For the second day, week 2 of BM #26, here is a basic dressing recipe which can be used with a whole range of things.

I found this recipe in Tarla Dalal's 'Fast Foods Made Healthy'. I made this with low-fat yogurt and thought it would be a very good substitute for cream and egg based dressings commercially available. 

It made for a no-nonsense dipping sauce for our family. The kids ate their snack without any complaints. We loved the sauce with some Savory Scones too. Incidentally I figured that the kids like celery with peanut butter as well :)

Ingredients - 

Yogurt 1/4 cup
Lime Zest 1/2 tsp
Basil 1 tsp (I used dried basil)
Apple, grated 2 Tbsp
Salt and Pepper as per taste

Lemony Yogurt Dressing

Method Of Preparation -

Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and mix well.

Chill for a couple of hours before serving.

Serve as a dressing for salad. It tastes good as a dipping sauce for carrots, celery and even with crackers!! Get creative and enjoy!
