Cucumber-horseradish salad dressing


A tingle-your-tastebuds dressing that is so easy to make, especially if you have a hand-held wand blender.  If not, a food processor will do the trick!

Cucumber-Horseradish Salad Dressing

1 small seedless cucumber, peeled and chopped
1/4 c olive oil
2 T red-wine vinegar
2 T chives, chopped
1 T low-fat or nonfat plain yogurt
1 t Dijon mustard or hot Chinese mustard
1 t horseradish or wasabi paste
1 t sugar
Dash of salt

Blend all ingredients until smooth.  Be careful about using both hot mustard and wasabi together.  It's better tasting if you let one of the hot ingredients dominate.
