Creamy Poppy Seed Dressing

With a light, summery salad, you need a light, refreshing dressing. This is one. The original (from the Complete Canadian Diabetic Cookbook) called for sour cream and orange juice. I've altered it just a bit. It's light, lovely and very quick to whip up.

1 small- medium orange
3 Tablespoons light mayonnaise
3 Tablespoons fat-free, no sugar added yogurt (I used Yoplait Source Melon Trio)
1 Tablespoon honey
2 teaspoons poppy seeds

With a citrus zester, zest the orange into a small bowl. (about 1 teaspoon orange zest).

Cut the zested orange in half, and squeeze out the juice to make 1/4 cup. Add it to the orange zest in the bowl.

Whisk together the orange zest and juice, mayonnaise, yogurt, honey, and poppy seeds.

Makes about 3/4 cup. Store leftover dressing in the refrigerator.
