2 cup(s) watercress, tough stems removed, coarsely chopped

3 Tbsp parsley, fresh, leaves

1 medium scallion(s), chopped (about 2 Tbsp)

3 Tbsp basil, fresh, leaves

1/2 cup(s) plain fat-free yogurt, Greek-style recommended

1/2 tsp table salt


  • In bowl of a blender or food processor, place all ingredients and pulse until well combined. Pour into a bowl or plastic container and refrigerate until ready to use. Yields about 1/4 cup of sauce per serving.


  • This sauce will keep for up to 3 days, covered, in the refrigerator.

    You can substitute any fresh herb for either the parsley or the basil. And consider swapping spinach for the watercress for a milder flavor. Or for a peppery flavor, use arugula instead of the watercress.
