Easy Cabbage Salad with Yogurt Dressing, and more salads

I like to have salads on hand in the fridge in summer.

I don’t often remember to put them on the table for dinner, but we we tend to graze a bit more in the summer and they’re great to snack on during the day.

And I eat even more strangely than usual in the summer.

My typical lunch is yogurt, a couple of nectarines or peaches, either a big tomato, sliced or a handful of cherry tomatoes and a hard-boiled egg (a bit of protein). A small dish of some sort of salad rounds it out nicely.

Mon mari eats anything and everything he can find in the fridge. (No, I do not, have never and never will make him lunch…. or breakfast. He’s an adult, he can handle it.)

I do like to keep my salads on the healthy side, however…. Even when I’m craving a heavy mayo dressing.

Using part plain or Greek yogurt lightens it while keeping the mayo flavor.
