Incredible! 5.0/5

This makes a good, creamy salad dressing with a real kick. Without the peppers, this makes a great base for any very low calorie salad dressing. You will not be disapointed if you use real Greek Yogurt; there is no substitute. The amount of Chipotle pepper I add to this gives it a very substantial kick. I like it this way, you may want to experiment with less at first. I use the same base for a creamy caesar dressing for my wife, leaving out the chipotle pepper and adding more garlic and 2 tsp of Worcester sauce. It's great fresh, but even better after it sits in the fridge a day or so letting the flavors meld.

I listed this as making 4 servings, but it is so lite and low in everything you can indulge yourself. I encourage you to have fun with this recipe and let me know of any other variences you come up with. mailbox@tmaine.com

A simple, colorful and nutritous summer salad that keeps well in the fridge for several days.

A vegetarian adaptation to a recipe from Allrecipes... with less oil, more seasonings, and with whole wheat couscous for added nutrition.

There is no "COOKING TIME" --- it is actually "sitting in the fridge time"

A pretty basic low-calorie version of cole-slaw that will not add to your pudge...
I have made this hundreds of times over the years and it is especially a hit at BBQs and picnics.

There are tonnes of recipes on the web for low-calorie coleslaw .. this one is creamier, tasier and yummier than anyone I have found.
