Greek Goddess Dressing
If you think of creamy dressings as junk food, using this Greek yogurt blend instead of sour cream or regular mayonnaise will change your mind. Use the dressing like you’d use any ranch or Green Goddess dressing—on salads, as a dip for veggies, or as a sauce for anything your kids claim they won’t eat. It can also be used as a marinade, on top of baked potatoes, or served as a dipper for your oven fries. Now you can serve creamy dressings without the guilt.
Apple Cider Vinaigrette
Quick and convenient, this vinaigrette is a must-try. It takes five minutes to make. Plus, it’s healthier than store-bought dressings, which tend to be loaded with sugar and sodium.
My Secret Tomato Sauce
Even kids can be convinced that this pesto rocks. If you’d like to make it a few days ahead, place the pesto in a small container and pour a layer of olive oil over it before refrigerating. The oil acts like a sealant and helps keep the green color of the pesto. Just be sure to scrape off the oil before serving.
Make peak-of-the-season preserves without even stirring. A slow cooker makes it possible. Another great use: Brush on grilled chicken or pork for a sweet finish.
