Fat Free Creamy Style Lime Mint Dressing

http://greenlitebites.com/2012/03/09/fat-free-creamy-style-lime-mint-dressing/

Yesterday I was dreaming about a salad. Not just any salad, but a chickpea filled, cucumber, and red onion salad with a fun, tangy dressing.

Unfortunately, I had no cucumber or red onion. Well, that’s a lie. I had a half of cucumber but it was a mushy mess and the only onion I have left this week is a really sad looking yellow one.

Suffice to say no fun cucumber chickpea salad for me but I still couldn’t get the idea of this salad out of my head! So I made up the fun tangy dressing I had in mind anyway and it is AWESOME. Simple but a fun mix of flavors that really freshen things up!

I ended up cracking open a can of chickpeas and I ate a bowl of them mixed with this dressing. Sad, I know, but once the thought of the salad was in my head I had to satisfy it and I must say, I’m not sad I did.

This Dressing + Chickpeas = YUMMY! Fat Free Lime Mint Dressing Creamy Style

Here’s what I did…

  • 1/2 cup (56g) of Fat Free Yogurt (I used greek)
  • 1 tbsp (21g) honey
  • 1 tbsp lime juice
  • 1 tsp dried mint
  • Tiny pinch of salt

Whisk everything together!

That’s it!

Makes just about 6 tablespoons.

I’ve since used it on wraps, it went great with some deli turkey, and a dip for carrots.

I’ll give the nutritional info for 3 servings as I think most dressing use 2 tablespoons as a serving.
