Foodie Friday :: Creamy Balsamic Dressing

The other day I was trying to figure out what I wanted for dinner.  Going through the fridge I saw that I had some romaine hearts, tomatoes & avocado…the perfect salad makings.  The problem?  I had zero dressing!

Dun, dunna-nuhhhhh…internet to the rescue!!

Since I loooove balsamic vinegar, I knew I wanted a dressing with that.  I’ve also seen recipes for dressings made with greek yogurt so since I had both of those ingredients, I searched for ‘balsamic greek yogurt homemade dressing’.

I quickly found this amazing recipe….http://www.salad-in-a-jar.com/skinny-secrets/low-calorie-creamy-balsamic-salad-dressing.  It was simple and I had all the ingredients…sold!

It’s always nerve wracking when you make something new.  You worry if it’s going to be good or even edible.  And what if it’s not?  What will I do for dinner if the dressing sucks?

Thankfully, I didn’t have to worry about that because the dressing was Uh-mazing!

It’s hard to tell in the photo, but here’s what was in my salad:

1/2 cup black beans (drained & rinsed)

1/2 avocado

several grape tomatoes

romaine lettuce

It.was.SO.good!  

And the best part, is that it’s free of processed junk and artificial colors/flavors.  I will definitely be making this again!
