I was thinking about making a parfait, but I was really in the mood for a salad. I'm picky about the dressings I use on my salads, so I decided to try using some 0% Plain instead. I remember a friend of mine who would make avocado and tomato sandwiches with Greek yogurt instead of mayonnaise. I was also craving tomato and mozzarella when I opened the fridge, so this is what I pulled out for experimentation: romaine lettuce mix, cucumber, avocado, tomato, mozzarella, basil and 0% Plain. I wasn't sure how it would turn out, but it was insanely delicious! Savory, filling, and just under 180 calories.
Not Your Average Salad (serves 3)
3 cups bagged salad of your choice (Romaine is a staple in my fridge)
1 6 oz container of Chobani 0% Plain yogurt
1 medium avocado, cut into bite-sized chunks
1 cup cucumber slices, halved
15 grape tomatoes, halved lengthwise
3 basil leaves
1 reduced fat mozzarella cheese stick, cut into 1/4" slices
Freshly ground salt and pepper
Prep time = 7 minutes. 179 calories per serving, if you use correct measurements.
First, grab out three bowls. Put lettuce, avocado chunks, cucumber slices, tomatoes, into the bowl.
Put 0% Plain onto each salad. Rip up one basil leaf per bowl and sprinkle on top of yogurt. Add mozzarella cheese, salt and pepper. Serve your hungry family! Thats it. It looks so good, right?

I ate this by itself, but pairing this with soup and some crusty bread would be delicious!
