    Cucumber Herb Vinaigrette

    As the base of this herb-spiked dressing, pureed cucumber provides a mellow grassy flavor and a luxurious texture. Pureeing vegetables into a salad dressing is a great way to give it body (and to sneak in more low-cal vegetables). Experiment with tomatoes, arugula and/or roasted garlic to create your own dressing magic.


    • 1 small cucumber, peeled, seeded and chopped
    • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
    • 2 tablespoons red-wine vinegar
    • 2 tablespoons fresh chives, chopped
    • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
    • 1 tablespoon nonfat, or low-fat plain yogurt
    • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
    • 1 teaspoon prepared horseradish
    • 1 teaspoon sugar
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt


    Step 1
