Fat-free yogurt and fat-free mayonnaise cut down on the calories in the dressing.

Ingredients

  • Dressing
  • 2 cups fat-free plain yogurt
  • 4 large basil leaves
  • 1/4 cup parsley
  • 2 tablespoons chopped chives
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 2 tablespoons fat-free mayonnaise
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon additional pepper
  • Salad
  • 8 cups chopped romaine lettuce
  • 1/2 cup halved cherry or grape tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced red onion
  • 1 cup diced cucumber
  • 2 slices cooked turkey breast
  • 2 tablespoons bacon bits
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded Colby or Colby Jack cheese

Directions

For the dressing

Place 1 cup of yogurt, basil, parsley, chives, lemon juice, honey and pepper in a blender or food processor. Cover and pulse until smooth (dressing will be green in color). Pour yogurt mixture into a medium bowl; stir in remaining yogurt and mayonnaise until just blended; refrigerate until ready to serve. 

Note: Dressing may be prepared up to two days ahead and stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

For the salad
Place lettuce at the bottom of a bowl and sprinkle the tomatoes, onion, cucumber, turkey, bacon bits, egg and Colby cheese on top. Just before serving, pour dressing over salad and toss lightly.
