  • 1 In small bowl, mix yogurt, mayonnaise and blue cheese until well blended. Cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour to blend flavors.

EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Although high in calories and fat, nuts provide lots of vitamin E. We need vitamin E as a protective agent against cell damage. The key is just not to go nuts with nuts!

To toast nuts, cook them in an ungreased heavy skillet over medium-low heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently until browning begins, then stirring constantly until nuts are golden brown and you can smell the toasted aroma.

Save time (and a dirty bowl) by using purchased reduced-calorie blue cheese dressing.
