Well Dressed for the Summer!

Condimento Piccante per Insalate con Ajvar & Yogurt
Spicy Ajvar & Yogurt Salad Dressing

Our Summer is taking it's time getting under way this year, but I wasn't going to let that stop me from making a salad today! Even though I still have a cold, even though the sun is never around for very long- I had lovely, sweet, yellow cocktail tomatoes, crisp arugula and fresh cucumber in the fridge- and that sounded like lunch to me!

Still, the main question when it comes to salads is... what dressing? And I have to say that when it comes to salads, I am more of a purist, opting for a vinaigrette or a simple oil and vinegar affair with a little honey maybe... except today I decided to try something out. Simple but scrumptious and healthy too! 

I made the dressing from 4 tablespoons of plain, low-fat yogurt, 2 tablespoons of olive oil, 1 teaspoon of spicy Ajvar, 1 teaspoon of honey and the juice of 1 lime... simple! A little salt and pepper and a good stir and I have to say, that was one tasty dressing! A few flakes of chili made it extra yummy and lifted the cool, fresh flavors of the cucumber and tomato...  and yes folks, it was just delicious!

Try it an see!
