I don't like mayonnaise-based salad dressings, but this is a nice, creamy dressing that uses yogurt instead. I imagine it would be fairly forgiving if one wanted to use richer yogurt, or swap some of the ingredients. Next time I might use more tahini, because I love tahini!
If you agree with Lynne Rossetto Kasper’s belief that “the chickpea should be canonized into the food lover’s hall of fame” then you’ll love this delicious, flavoursome and very healthy warm chickpea salad from award-winning vegetarian chef Peter Berley’s book “Fresh Food Fast: Delicious, Seasonal Vegetarian Meals in Under an Hour”. I subscribed to Lynne Rossetto Kasper’s “The Splendid Table” newsletters some time ago, and this is one of many fantastic recipes she has included in her newsletter. The recipes and her tips - which I have included in this posting - are great. I have posted this recipe here exactly as I received it. Because "The Splendid Table” recipes and Lynne’s tips are always SO excellent, I shall post some more of them. I love this recipe, Lynne clearly loves this recipe; I hope that other chickpea lovers will too!
I had this marvelous cranberry sauce about 5 years ago at a friends house. Since I have Diabetes, I substituted Splenda for an equal amount of sugar...you could switch back if you like. I love this recipe and make it every year at Thanksgiving. It's best if you make it several days ahead to allow the flavors to blend. It's a step above the "norm".
This recipe is from my friend Joan and is one of our favorites. I am guessing on the amounts for the salad ingredients. You can proportion them to taste or based on how many people you are feeding. The dressing recipe makes enough for two good-sized salads. You can make this a main dish salad by adding cooked chicken.

This recipe is intended to be thick like a Caesar dressing should be. Traditionally a caesar salad is dressed with the dressing before serving, its not meant to be poured on or thin.
