A High Calcium Salad Dressing

This “Parsley Dill Dressing” recipe is a tasty way to add more calcium to your diet. The dressing contains 74 mg. of calcium in a ¼ cup serving. I don’t find it hard to use ½ cup on a big salad made of mixed greens, red cabbage, garbanzo beans, tomatoes, chicken and sunflower seeds. Add a little salmon, tuna or chicken for more protein and to make a complete meal. This dressing is also good on grilled or baked fish.

Parsley Dill Dressing Makes 1 cup dressing

¾ cup Fat Free Plain Greek Yogurt
½ cup minced parsley
2 Tbsp. fresh dill or 2 tsp. dried dill
2 Tbsp. lemon juice
1 tsp. 100% maple syrup
1/8 tsp. salt
2 Tbsp. olive oil

Mix all ingredients in a blender until smooth.  Refrigerate.
