Light Thousand Island Dressing

Low-fat yogurt makes this dressing a better option than the bottled kind, and it still has the orange hue the classic is known for, thanks to the addition of ketchup and red pepper.

Make this lightened-up Italian dressing in a bowl with a whisk; or, for a shortcut, shake it up in a glass jar with a lid, and use the jar to store your leftovers in the fridge.
