Creamy Garlic, Parsley, and Feta Dressing

We suggest pairing this garlicky dressing with mixed greens such as Boston lettuce and watercress, or drizzling it over grilled tofu or chicken for a light yet satisfying meal. If you prefer a milder dressing, cut back the garlic to two teaspoons. Recipe adapted from Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health, in Stockbridge, Massachusetts.

Cook's Notes

Healthy Trick
Use a combination of Greek yogurt and olive oil -- rather than mayonnaise or sour cream -- to add richness to dressings and dips.
