Healthy and Creamy Blue Cheese Dressing

This creamy blue cheese dressing takes just minutes to make and is completely guilt free! It is creamy and a little chunky... Just wonderful served over classic garden salad, an iceberg wedge, or as a snack with carrot and celery sticks.

Ingredients:

1/3 cup plain non-fat Greek yogurt

3 tablespoons mayonnaise

                                                                                                                                                                 3 3 tablespoons non-fat milk or 2%

                                                                                                                                                                  2 tablespoons white wine vinegar                                                                

½ teaspoon salt

¼ teaspoon pepper

1 tablespoon shallot or minced onion

¼ cup crumbled blue cheese

Whisk Greek yogurt, mayonnaise, milk, vinegar, salt and pepper in medium bowl until completely smooth.

Add in shallot and blue cheese and whisk until desired consistency. For a less chunky dressing, you can mash the blue cheese into the dressing with the whisk or a fork if desired.

Yield:

Makes just over 1 cup
