*As a healthier alternative, this sandwich can also be turned into a salad.

Yogurt Blue Cheese Dressing

Ingredients:

  • ½ Cup plain, nonfat Greek yogurt
  • ¼ cup light mayonnaise
  • ¼ cup buttermilk, or low fat milk
  • ½ tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • ½ cup blue cheese crumbles
  • Salt & pepper to taste

Directions:

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the yogurt, mayonnaise, buttermilk (or milk), and Worcestershire.
  2. Fold the blue cheese crumbles into the yogurt mixture, and season with salt & pepper to tastes.
  3. If the mixture is too thick, add a small amount of buttermilk, or milk until desired consistency is reached, for a sandwich, thicker is better, however for a salad I prefer to thin it out a bit more.
