I love eating salads when it’s warm out. They’re light, refreshing and don’t fill me up too much.
This Greek Wedge Salad is my new favorite salad. And it’s only 2 points for blue and purple, 3 points for green.
I kept this Greek Wedge Salad low in points by making a creamy dressing instead of an oil based dressing.
Plain, fat-free Greek yogurt is perfect for this dressing. I mixed it with garlic, fresh lemon juice, a small amount of oil, dill, salt and pepper.
The only point in the dressing (for blue and purple) comes from the teaspoon of oil. If you follow green it is also 1 point for the yogurt.
Iceberg lettuce is actually my favorite. I know it has the least nutritional value, but I love it.
Over the years I have opened up to romaine lettuce and other lettuce, but iceberg is almost always my go-to.
That’s part of the reason I love wedge salads. It’s a big chunk of iceberg!
The rest of the salad consists of reduced fat feta cheese, tomatoes, red onion and cucumber.
Feta cheese is where the other point comes from, I used 2 tablespoons.
Here is a breakdown of the points:
Again, for blue and purple it is 2 points, green is 3 points.
Yield: 1 serving (2 points for blue and purple, 3 points for green)
- 1/4 head of iceberg lettuce (make a wedge)
- 1/4 cup plain, fat-free Greek yogurt
- 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
- 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
- 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
- 1/4 teaspoon dill
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- 2 tablespoons reduced-fat feta cheese
- 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, cut in half
- 1/2 cup English cucumber, chopped
- 1 tablespoon red onion, chopped
Mix together the yogurt, olive oil, garlic, lemon juice, dill, salt and pepper.
Place the iceberg wedge on a plate or bowl. Pour the dressing over the wedge, then add feta cheese, tomatoes, cucumber and red onion.
