If you think yogurt dressings are boring, this recipe, featuring sweet roasted garlic and zesty chives, may change your mind.
Ingredients

garlic clove(s)

1 bulb(s), small

water

2 Tbsp, warmed

fat-free ricotta cheese

½ cup(s)

Plain fat free yogurt

¼ cup(s)

chives

2 Tbsp, fresh, finely chopped

table salt

½ tsp

black pepper

¼ tsp, freshly ground

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Wrap the garlic in foil and roast until soft and fragrant, 45–60 minutes. When cool enough to handle, separate the cloves.
  2. Squeeze the garlic from the cloves into a blender or food processor. Add the water, ricotta, and yogurt; puree. Transfer to a bowl then stir in the chives, salt, and pepper. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours to allow the flavors to blend. Stir again before serving. Yields 1/4 cup per serving.
Notes
The garlic can be roasted several days ahead and refrigerated, cutting the prep time to just a matter of minutes.
