Blue cheese dip from a bottle is bad news as far as salt and saturated fat are concerned. That doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy it from time to time: using a base of plain, non-fat Greek yogurt makes a world of difference to the nutritional impact.

Pro tip: Refrigerating the dressing for at least an hour is absolutely essential to give the flavors time to meld.
