Getting back to the rich salad dressings that so many people love, here is a recipe that won't give your doctor palpitations.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup plain, fat-free yogurt
  • 1/4 cup low-fat sour cream
  • 1/4 cup of frozen apple juice concentrate, thawed
  • 1 tablespoon spicy brown mustard
  • 1 tablespoon minced tarragon leaves

Mix everything in a small bowl, and you have a creamy homemade dressing with a fraction of the fat and all of the taste you'd find in restaurants. If you're a purist and the low-fat sour cream is still too much for you, you can always go for fat-free.
