Low-Fat Honey Mustard Dressing

I love salads, but sometimes I get bored of the usual dressing options. I'm always switching between Ranch (my favorite is Bolthouse Farms) and vinaigrette, Ranch and vinaigrette. Lame.

When Jill came over for Macaroni & Cheese the other day, I decided to try something new. A quick Google search uncovered a plethora of recipes for honey mustard dressing. "Oooh," I thought. "That is neither Ranch nor vinaigrette." 

And for an added bonus, this dressing is off-the-hook easy. Seriously, it'll be ready in 2 minutes. Give it a try and let me know what you think.

Serves: 4

2 tablespoons reduced-fat mayonnaise
2 tablespoons plain yogurt (If you don't have plain yogurt on hand, just use 2 more tablespoons of mayo instead.)
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon lemon juice
Salt and pepper to taste

Combine mayonnaise, yogurt, honey, and lemon juice until well blended. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve over your favorite greens. 

P.S. As I was typing this up, I realized that Honey Mustard Dressing would be an unbelievable dipping sauce for chicken tenders. Now my wheels are really spinning. Chicken tender salad, anyone?
