I LOVE salad.

Like I could eat salad twice a day, every day, and never get bored.

But I have a problem…

I like  my salads with cheese,

a lot of cheese,

and my favorite dressing is blue cheese.

NOT exactly the healthiest way to eat a salad.

Did you know that one ounce {like that’s all I use} packs a whopping 133 calories and 14 grams of fat. Doesn’t make for a very nutritious salad now does it?

Oh, but it’s SO good!

I’m not one to give up my favorites, but I do try to make healthier choices, so I experimented with  my new fave Greek yogurt.

WOW, was I surprised.  You would never know the difference.  This dressing is SO creamy and  full of flavor that you would never guess there was anything healthy about it.
