Curry-Yogurt Dressing

Yogurt thickens this vibrant dressing and tempers its spices. Making your own spice blend yields the best flavor. But in a pinch, substitute 2 teaspoons store-bought curry powder.

Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons minced ginger
  • 1/3 cup chopped onion
  • 2 large garlic cloves, minced (2 1/2 teaspoons)
  • 1/4 teaspoon whole cumin seeds

  • 1 1/2 cups low-fat plain yogurt
  • 3/4 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice

Directions
