  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 deseeded red chilli, chopped finely

Mix all the ingredients together and store in the fridge.

  1. Simple balsamic vinaigrette

  1. Creamy cucumber dressing

A light low-fat creamy dressing delicious drizzled over salads and in wraps. Using fat-free natural yoghurt makes this homemade dressing much lower in saturated fat than pre-packaged options.

Ingredients:

  • 125g fat-free yoghurt
  • ½ cucumber, chopped roughly
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 clove garlic
  • Freshly ground pepper to taste

Blend all ingredients together in a food process or blender, and store in the fridge. If you don’t have a food processor or blender, then chop the cucumber finely instead and mix the ingredients together for a chunkier dressing or dip, like the one pictured below.
