creamy cilantro tomatillo dressing

30 Sep

Homemade salad dressing is really the way to go.  Super fresh tasting.  Plus, you control the ingredients so there are no artificial stabilizers or unpronounceable chemicals (unless, of course, you have them on hand in your pantry).

This dressing comes from Gina’s Skinny Recipes and it’s great on a green salad or a taco salad.  I’ve made it before as written, but this time I realized I was out of light mayonnaise, so I just increased the Greek yogurt to 1/2 cup.  Just as tasty!

Creamy Cilantro Tomatillo Dressing

  • 1/2 cup lowfat buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup light mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup fat free Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 jalapeno, seeded
  • 1/4 cup cilantro
  • 1 tomatillo, husks removed, quartered
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 green onion
  • juice of 1/2 lime
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh parsley
  • 1/8 tsp. cumin
  • 1/4 tsp. ground pepper
  • 1/4 tsp. salt

Combine all ingredients in a blender.

Recipe from Gina’s Skinny Recipes.  1/4 cup dressing is 1 WWpts+.
