Prep/Total Time: 5 minutes
Yield: 1/4 cup

1/4 cup fat-free plain yogurt
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon honey
1/4 teaspoon minced chives
dash salt

In a jar with a tight-fitting lid, combine all ingredients; shake well. Serve over salad greens. Refrigerate leftover dressing.

Tips and Tricks
This recipe is a pared down version intended to serve one or two people. It can easily be doubled or tripled to serve a larger family. Chives can be found in the produce section of the grocery store. They are also one of the easiest herbs to grow, and a perennial, so they come back year after year. Grow them in a pot on your kitchen windowsill!
Make It Healthier
Omit the salt.
How Kids Can Help
Older kids could probably make this entire recipe. Younger kids can measure ingredients and shake dressing.
