Ingredients

For the dressing:

  • 2 cups fat-free plain yogurt, divided
  • 4 large basil leaves
  • 1/4 cup parsley, stems removed
  • 2 tablespoons chopped chives
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 2 tablespoons fat-free mayonnaise
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (optional)
  • 1/4 teaspoon additional pepper (optional)

For the salad:

  • 8 cups chopped romaine lettuce (1 small head)
  • 1/2 cup halved cherry or grape tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced red onion
  • 1 cup diced cucumber
  • 2 slices cooked turkey breast, cut into strips
  • 2 tablespoons bacon bits
  • 1 egg, hard boiled and chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded Colby or Colby Jack cheese

For the dressing:
Place 1 cup of yogurt, basil, parsley, chives, lemon juice, honey and pepper in a blender or food processor. Cover and pulse until smooth (dressing will be green in color). Pour yogurt mixture into a medium bowl; stir in remaining yogurt and mayonnaise until just blended; refrigerate until ready to serve.

Note: Dressing may be prepared up to 2 days ahead and stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

For the salad:
Place lettuce at the bottom of a bowl and sprinkle the tomatoes, onion, cucumber, turkey, bacon bits, egg and Colby cheese on top. Just before serving, pour dressing over salad and toss lightly.
