Apple and Cucumber Salad with ChickenAugust 12th, 2017 in Salads by Julia Volhina
Light chicken salad, great on its own, as a side or on the sandwich.
Chicken thighs work great in this recipe, breast would be “skinnier” option. Alternatively rotisserie chicken leftovers would do as well.
If you are cooking chicken yourself, make sure it is cooled down to room temperature before slicing it for the salad.
You can get creative with dressing here: between low fat yoghurt, mix of yogurt with sour cream or mayo or just mayo itself. Choose to the taste or/and amount of calories.
Yogurt, Mustard and Lemon Juice Salad DressingMarch 12th, 2016 in Sauces & Dips & Spreads by Julia Volhina
Yogurt, mustard and lemon juice salad dressing tastes great especially in meat based salads, but is also good with tomatoes, good on sandwiches and as dipping sauce.
It can be used as lighter substitute for mayo: if you compare 900 calories for 5oz of mayo to about 140 calories of similar amount of this dressing.
Now, taste of this dressing will vary based on what kind of mustard you use, as well as based on proportion of mustard and lemon juice. Just experiment with different types and proportions to your liking.
I like using chobani yogurt for this one: there is enough space in the container to fit mustard and juice and mix, so no need to use extra bowl for mixing.
Fruit Salad with YogurtAugust 2nd, 2014 in Desserts, Salads by Julia Volhina
Here is your step away from something usually called a dessert: fresh fruit salad dressed with plain yogurt.
No flour, no sugar, almost no fat (if you use low-fat yogurt); only fresh raw fruits loaded with vitamins and tons of good nutrients.
Besides being a dessert, this salad can be great choice for breakfast or lunch or just a snack when you need it.
You can mix and match fruits to your liking for this one. I used pineapples, banana, orange, apple, kiwi and pear. Mint is also optional and can be skipped it if you don’t like it.
