Do you like to work out? I can't say I do.
But since I am a foodie and I am not one of those who have a great metabolism, I have to work out.
I see all sizes in the gym. Chunky, masculine, skinny, hour glass figured ladies, obese, over weight and what not.
When I see obese, over weight, chunky people I feel good about myself.
When I see hour glass figures, I get depressed.
When I see skinny ladies, I decide to eat salad for two meals that day.
But if I have to eat salad all by myself, I get sad.
To avoid that, I should make my husband eat it with me.
To do that, I made this dressing because he loves ranch dressing. Since I had to eat it too, I made my version without using eggs.
Do you feel 'J' when you look at those skinny ladies? Go ahead make this salad and replace one meal with it. No? Then check out cakes and cookies on this blog and indulge yourself.
One Year Back - Nutty Okra Masala
Cream Cheese - 4 TBSP softened (I used fat free)
Buttermilk - 1/2 - 3/4 cup (Depending on how thin you want the dressing to be)
Scallions - Chopped very fine about 2 TBSP (use only green part)
Salt - to taste
Black Pepper powder - to taste
Hot sauce - 2 tsp (optional. Use only if you are used to spicy food)
Garlic - 2 cloves grated
Parsley - 1 1/2 tsp if dried and 1 TBSP if fresh
Beat the cream cheese till smooth and no lumps are there. Add buttermilk and continue to mix till everything comes together. Use 1/2 cup in the beginning and add the remaining 1/4 cup if required. Add salt, black pepper, hot sauce if using and mix. Finally add scallions, parsley (rub on your palm if using dried herb) and garlic. Mix it for the final time and use in salads.
The salad I made had Red radish, cucumber, tomatoes, green olives, avocado, arugula, baby spinach. You can use any veggie of your choice.
