Today’s issue includes two sauces that I’ve made this week! I’ve really been loving our new (and illegal) gas grill and have resolved to grill this entire week! So far, we’ve made grilled romaine (with this blue cheese dressing), grilled salmon (with the lime butter) and greek-style lamb burgers. Tonight, I’m grilling shrimp!



Stir together the following ingredients and serve it on a salad, steak, chicken or anything you can think of! If used sparingly, it can add lots of flavor with little guilt!

1 tablespoon finely chopped shallots
3 tablespoons crumbled blue cheese
2 tablespoons reduced-fat mayonnaise
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 teaspoons water
1 garlic clove, minced


This one isn’t the healthiest, but again, if used sparingly, it can be a great treat. Puree in a blender 1 clove of chopped garlic and 1/4 cup fresh lime juice. Melt 1 stick of butter and add it to the lime/garlic mixture through the hole at the top of the blender, so it mixes thoroughly. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Serve with roasted fish, corn-on-the-cob or even grilled veggies!

Note: If the butter started to harden (ew, I know) put it in the microwave for 10 seconds, give it a stir and it will be as good as new!

Hope you enjoyed these great sauce/dressing recipes!
