Avocado Green Goddess Dressing
I LOVE creamy, savory dressings but they are loaded with fat and salt. I took the advise of reviewer Sabra Bartlett and subbed all that mayo with Greek yogurt and non-fat sour cream. I also used anchovy paste (so happy to have used the rest of what I had!) in place of the anchovy fillets. I then thinned it a bit with white wine vinegar. YUMMO!! Absolutely delicious. Zero guilt and nothing to repent for at the gym tomorrow! Thanks so much for a much better dressing than the dreaded vinegrette.

Chef John's Beans and Greens
Chef John I've enjoyed playing with this recipe! This time, I rendered nitrate free bacon. After removing the bacon from the pan, I removed the fatty parts and chopped the lean pieces to add later. I sauteed 1 yellow onion, 1 tsp curry powder and the garlic in the fat. Once the onions were caramelized, I added Trader Joe's low sodium vegetable stock, seasonings and liquid smoke. After reducing per your recipe, I added the beans, a can of Glory seasoned collard greens I had on hand and some leftover (cooked) turkey meatballs. The chopped bacon went into the pot in the final few minutes. Yum! Talk about amazing flavor and pretty healthy to boot.

Kiki's Mexican Chicken Salad
I was attracted to this salad because it is chock full of power veggies! The high calories and sodium are the only reason I gave it 3 stars. I tweaked the base recipe a little to reduce the fat and salt. I used Hellman's canola mayo instead of regular mayo and low fat sour cream. I also only used 1 avocado - it was plenty for our tastes. Instead of high sodium taco seasoning, I combined 1 full tsp of cumin, 1 full tsp black pepper, 1/4 tsp cayenne, 1/4 tsp chili powder, 1/4 tsp onion powder, 1/4 tsp smoked paprika & 1/8 tsp ground mustard. Omitted the hot pepper sauce entirely. The spices added enough kick. Super yummy & perfect over salad greens!! I will be making this all summer long! Thanks, Kiki!
