Servings: 6

Buttermilk and low-fat Greek yogurt lend body to this tangy salad dressing without the added fat of mayonnaise. A bit of crumbled blue cheese adds richness, but omit it if you wish.


  • 1/2 cup low-fat or nonfat Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1 Tbs. fresh lemon juice
  • 2 dashes of hot sauce
  • 2 tsp. coarsely ground pepper
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh chives, plus more for garnish
  • Kosher salt, to taste
  • 1 head iceberg lettuce, cut into 6 wedges
  • 3 oz. crumbled blue cheese


In a small bowl, whisk together the yogurt, buttermilk, lemon juice, hot sauce, pepper and the 1/3 cup chives. Season with salt.

Place 1 iceberg lettuce wedge on each plate and drizzle with the dressing. Sprinkle each wedge with 1/2 oz. blue cheese and garnish with chives. Serve immediately. Serves 6.
