Layering salad ingredients is such an easy way to impress guests. Toss the salad at the table so they can admire all the textures and colors.

Ingredients

1 cup(s) Weight Watchers Plain Natural Nonfat Yogurt
1 Tbsp scallion(s), chopped
1/2 cup(s) English cucumber, peeled, chopped
1 tsp minced garlic
1/4 tsp kosher salt
1/8 tsp black pepper, or to taste 2 Tbsp mint leaves, fresh, chopped
1 small sweet red pepper(s), cut in strips
5 cup(s) romaine lettuce, chopped
1 cup(s) canned chickpeas, rinsed, drained
1 cup(s) red onion(s), sliced
1 cup(s) English cucumber, peeled, thinly sliced
1 cup(s) grape tomatoes, cut in half
2 Tbsp reduced-fat feta cheese, crumbled
8 medium olive(s), Kalamata, pitted, coarsely chopped
1/8 tsp black pepper, freshly ground, or to taste

Instructions

Place first seven ingredients in a glass or plastic container; mix well. Cover and refrigerate, at least 30 minutes, until ready to serve.*

Meanwhile, layer salad ingredients in a large glass container in the following order: red pepper, half of lettuce, chickpeas, onion, remaining lettuce, cucumber and tomatoes. Refrigerate salad until ready to serve.

Just before serving, spoon yogurt dressing over top; garnish with feta, olives and pepper. Toss and serve. Yields about 2 cups per serving.
Notes

  • *To create a thicker dressing, strain the yogurt prior to combining it with the other ingredients. To drain, place unbleached paper coffee filters in the bottom of a strainer and place over a dish or bowl to capture liquid. Pour yogurt on top of filter and cover the strainer. Place in refrigerator and allow liquid to drain until it reaches the desired consistency.
