Recipe: Easy No-Fat Yogurt Sauce

Easy No-Fat Yogurt Sauce

1 tbsp. minced garlic
1/2 tsp. sea salt
1/2 cup no-fat plain yogurt
1 tsp. olive oil

In a small bowl, mash together the garlic and salt to form a paste. Stir in the yogurt and oil. Cover and place in the refrigerator for 15-20 minutes. Remove and serve.

*Johnna’s tip: Where there’s a will, there’s a way. We want to reduce our fat intake but we don’t want to give up all our comfort foods, so what do we do? We replace the fatty content with plenty of flavor. We say sprinkle a little sea salt on some sweet potatoes sliced into fries, slide them in the oven, bake/broil them and then pair them with this yogurt sauce. Delish.
