After having something similar in a restaurant, I just had to start making these at home. Now I'm addicted! When they are in season, I substitute fresh blueberries and/or strawberries for the dried cranberries. Also delicious!
Incredibly simple, the most difficult thing about this recipe is washing up the food processor. This makes a cool dressing, perfect with fish, or with a curry. I like to dip red pepper strips in the bowl, or bits of fried fish. Excellent for low carb diets.
This is a refreshing light salad that goes with anything or even by itself. My friend made this for me and I eat it about 2-3 times a week now. You can omit or add any veggies that you like, I also add avacados when I have them on hand.
My mom used this salad dressing on a romaine lettuce salad. She included mandarin oranges and almonds in the salad and topped it with this dressing. I love the combination and use it on all fruity salads now.
The thin version of this recipe makes a great salad dressing. When thickened after refrigeration it makes a good vegetable dip, topping for a baked potato, or mayonnaise replacement for sandwiches. Can be made vegan by using tofu instead of yogurt. This recipe tastes best after marinating in the refrigerator for 24 hours (not in the cooking time). It should last about 7 days in the refrigerator and you may need to thin this dressing before serving if it is too thick. From "Choices - Quick & Healthy Cooking" cookbook.
I was looking for something to make with all these eggs. I borrowed something from Tish, Stella Mae, and several more that has egg salads at Recipe*zaar. I can't seem to follow just one recipe. So, I came up with a twist.
