*Creamy Herb Dressing, from “More Choices” by Cheryl D. Thomas-Peters, RD and James A Peters, MD, DrPH, RD

1/2 cup 1 percent tofu, soft
2 Tbsp. tofu or soy or nonfat milk
2 Tbsp. olive oil
2 – 3 Tbsp. lemon juice
1 tsp. honey
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
2 tsp. fresh dill or 1/2 – 1 tsp dried dill

1. Combine all ingredients except the dill in the blender and blend until smooth. Scrape the sides of the blender as needed. Add more milk as needed to get a consistency that is quite thin and pourable.*

2. Pour into bowl and stir in dill. Add more lemon juice if a tangier taste is preferred.

Makes 1 cup
prep time: 5 minutes

*This dressing can be made thinner so it’s pourable, or thicker if used for a dip. It can be made with a variety of herbs, preferably fresh herbs for the best flavor.
