Cucumber, Feta Cheese and Dill Dressing

Cucumber Dressing
Top Off Your Greens! We love our greens. Spinach, romaine, arugula and chard: if it’s healthful and fits in a bowl, we’re for it! Research suggests that healthful compounds, such as beta-carotene found in veggies like carrots and broccoli, are better used by the body when you consume a little healthy fat along with them. This creamy, cool dressing tastes good on roasted vegetables or a hot portobello mushroom sandwich. Refrigerated, it will keep up to one week.

  • 1 cup sliced seedless cucumber (peeled if desired)
  • 1 6-oz. container plain nonfat yogurt
  • 2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • Pinch of ground cumin (optional)
  • 2 Tbsp. fresh dill leaves
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

In blender, purée cucumber, yogurt, olive oil, feta cheese, cumin, dill, salt and pepper together. Toss with greens; serve.
