One of my latest salad creations is this zucchini and tomato with home-made yogurt dressing.
You may have seen my cucumber tomato salad which is one of my go-to dishes for dinner and I have it at least once per week. Well, a few weeks ago I had some zucchini in the refrigerator and threw this one together. We were not disappointed!
I’m not one who relishes long periods of time in the kitchen, late at night after my long day is over.
That’s why I love these salads. Like other salads I’ve introduced, this one has two major ingredients, so it’s a breeze to chop and throw together. The first part of the prep is to simply wash and cut fresh zuchhini and tomatoes.
I don’t bother cutting the vegetables into small pieces.
It works out great because I enjoy the big crunch from the larger cuts.
I made a simple salad dressing out of yogurt.
Yes. Only yogurt. After cutting the vegetables and putting them in a large bowl, I added two tablespoons of Greek yogurt. Since the yogurt is dense, add two tablespoons of water and then mix until it covers the whole salad.
The combinations of the creamy, sour, yogurt along with the zing of fresh tomatoes and subtle zucchini make this a great combo. Try it!
Feel free to add basil, parsley, cilantro, or salt and pepper. It’s a good base that you can play with to your taste.
I did a quick nutrient analysis on this salad.
The yogurt adds a nice dose of calcium and protein. And of course, even just a couple of vegetables offer an abundance of great nutrients.
Check out all the Vitamins A and C this one offers in the analysis below. Not to mention all of the Vitamin K, Riboflavin, B6, Folate, Potassium and more!
Isn’t it great to know that even the simplest recipes can provide so much flavor and nutrients?
The analysis is based on one serving, which is approximately one cup of chopped tomatoes and one cup of chopped zucchini per person.
