Do you already feel how hard it is to stick to a 1200 calorie DASH diet? In this case, the healthy salad dressing recipe helps you keep your use of oils down.
This is an ideal dressing for a tomato, cucumber and red onion salad. It can be used with lettuce, and it is nice on potato salad.
It is also low sodium, yet it doesn’t feel so due to the presence of tomato and vinegar. One portion (2 tbsp) of this salad dressing contains 72 mg of sodium.
Unfortunately, it contains sugar, which counts against your fat/sweets allowance. If you think about it though, everything tasty in life has either fat, or sugar, or both.
- 1 tsp dry mustard
- 2 tsp sugar
- 2 tbsp lemon juice
- 1 tbsp red wine vinegar
- 4 tbsp tomato puree
- 1 cup of non-fat plain yogurt
- (optional) salt
Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and whisk together well. If you don’t have dry mustard, Dijon mustrd is just fine.
