   Note: This is a really simple throw-together dressing
   that works well with other seasonings, fresh herbs,
   lime juice instead of lemon, and even lowfat
   mayonnaise and yogurt, too. You can enjoy this creamy
   dressing as above for a hearty summer meal, or simply
   serve it as a smooth dressing for your tossed green
   salad.
