80--- Lemon Mint Yogurt Dressing

I think we can all agree that grilled vegetables are a fantastic summer dinner or side dish.  Easy, beautiful, versatile.  But sometimes they need a little extra something.  This is that something.

Lemon Mint Yogurt Dressing could also be used as a salad dressing.  OR you could put your leftover grilled vegetables onto a beautiful bed of spinach and serve it with this dressing for lunch the next day.  That's actually what I am eating as I type this.  And it's good.

Lemon Mint Yogurt Dressing
Makes ~1 1/2 cups

1 cup low fat plain yogurt (use Greek if you like)
3 Tbsp low fat buttermilk
2 Tbsp fresh squeezed lemon juice
Zest from two medium lemons
3/4 tsp dry mustard
2 tsp white wine vinegar
1 1/2 Tbsp chopped fresh mint
1 1/2 Tbsp chopped fresh chives
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 fresh ground black pepper (or to taste)

Place all ingredients into a glass jar.  Secure lid, shake thoroughly to mix, then place in refrigerator for at least 3 hours prior to serving.
