The inspiration for this Creamy Curry Ranch Dressing is a love of creamy dressings and a love of Indian spices. In most of my dinners, I try to carry the theme and ingredients through the whole dinner. That is a great tip to hold on to. The meal started with PAN FRIED CURRY PANEER spiced with a couple of different curry powders and other basic curry spices. I did the same thing with this creamy dressing.
My creamy dressing was creamy but it had no cream in it. As I frequently do, I used fat free plain Greek yogurt. The dressing is super easy to put together. Simply mix the spices in a bowl, and then, add to the Greek yogurt. This dressing is so good because it has so much flavor, yet is light and low in calories.
The other trick, learning, with this recipe was that I grilled the green cabbage on my outdoor grill. I used napa cabbage because it is both light and crunchy. I have seen on some cooking shows people grilling cabbage. I knew I want to try it. Even if this post is about the dressing, the totally repeatable idea here is grilling your cabbage. I grilled the cabbage indoors as well. The grilling adds such a cool flavor to the cabbage. I also really like the grill marks on the napa cabbage.
