Lower Calorie Garlic-Parmesan Salad Dressing

Here is a topic that I am sure to get a lot of controversial emails over. PDA, or Public Display of Attention. Now I am not talking about crazy making out or inappropriate touching. I am talking about a gentle kiss, hand holding, hugging. These are all pure honest displays of love. I am sorry, but I think it is healthy for people to see that there are healthy relationships out there. Don't be afraid to be romantic and affectionate in public. A lot of people need to be reassured, even in public, that you love them. Affection is a great way to show your love.
Romantic Tip: Public Display of Attention (the other PDA). Proudly and sincerely compliment, dote over and affirm your significant other in front of others.

Now on to todays recipe... I love garlic parmesan dressing. Unfortunately I do not like store bought dressing. I also am trying to cut back on calories and bad fats in my husbands diet. So I set out to make a healthier creamy dressing that we both enjoy.  So simple to make and so great on salads, veggies, sandwiches and wraps. 

Lower Calorie Garlic-Parmesan Salad Dressing

3 cloves Fresh Garlic
4 tablespoons White Vinegar
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
5 tablespoons Extra-Virgin Olive Oil
½ cup greek yogurt
1/2 tsp  Sea Salt
1/4 teaspoon fresh, coarsely-ground Black Pepper

Squeeze the garlic through a garlic press and into a small bowl. Measure and add in the vinegar, cheese, salt and pepper.

Drizzle in a steady stream of olive oil while whisking. Next, add in the Greek yogurt and stir to combine. Check for seasoning before pouring the salad dressing into an airtight container and refrigerating for a few hours.

  1. I bet this would be really good on sandwiches, too! I included this in a garlic round-up of sorts (below). I hope this is ok? If not, please just get in touch and I'll remove it. :)
