    Blue Cheese Dressing



    Optional Salad ingredients


    1. 1
      Fold one sheet of paper towel into quarters and place on a small plate. Spoon yogurt onto paper towel and refrigerate for about 20 minutes. This will allow it to drain and thicken.

      Whisk buttermilk, thickened yogurt and mayonnaise until smooth. Add vinegar and sugar and combine well. Stir in blue cheese and pepper, to taste.
    3. 3
      Combine hot sauce and oil. Add chicken and coat well. Barbecue chicken until cooked through. Cut chicken into bite size pieces for the salad.
    4. 4
      Place salad ingredients on plates. Top with dressing and chicken. Serve with extra hot sauce, if desired.

      This is a great, quick recipe when made with leftover chicken like I did. I simply sliced some roast chicken and warmed it in a skillet with the hot sauce and a bit of oil. Then served as directed except w/ grated carrots. The dressing didn't taste low-fat; I will try adding non-fat yogurt to my usual blue-cheese dressing in the future!

      This is a lovely and very light salad. I saute'ed the chicken in oil and hot sauce and piled it high atop the salad to serve. This made a wonderful presentation. The dressing is very good, and you don't taste the low-fat in it. It tastes like a wonderful, full flavored dressing. I didn't use bacon bits as I had none, but sure wish I had as we feel they would go perfect with this recipe. Thanks for sharing. :)

      Excellent, but not enough dressing for us. I tripled the dressing because this was a main dish for dinner. I left out the celery and carrots and went with the green onions only. I used chicken tenders and sauteed them in the oil and hot sauce and this worked out really well. Wonderful flavor in the chicken and the blue cheese dressing went great with the heat. Thanks Made for I Recommend.
