Simple Salad and Dressing

I'm following the Carb Lovers Diet and am really craving the veggies now. I like salad, but the choices of tasty dressing whilst keeping down the fats can be a challenge.

So tonight's salad  was this:
  • A hefty handful of lettuces/greens. Love the rocket in it!
  • Four cherry tomatoes, halved
  • Half a slice of grainy bread, sliced for croutons and baked.
With a salad dressing made of this:
  • 2-3 tablespoons of low fat greek yogurt
  • 3/4 - 1 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • 1/2-3/4 teaspoon honey
  • tiny pinch salt
  • tiny pinch pepper
I have one of those battey operated whisks that you can buy in kitchen stores or holiday fayres (As Seen On TV type demos!) It's perfect for blending small amounts of ingredients quickly and effeciently. The dressing, for me, made two sevings. Enjoy guilt free!
