Serves: 4

  • ½ cup non-fat plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 2 tablespoons white balsamic vinegar
  • ¼ teaspoon mustard powder
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 plum tomatoes
  • 2 Kirby or Persian cucumbers
  • ¼ head romaine lettuce
  • 1 yellow bell pepper
  • 2 medium carrots


  1. Put the yogurt in a medium bowl, add the basil and parsley, and stir to combine. Set aside.
  2. Mince the garlic.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together the garlic, vinegar, mustard powder, salt, and black pepper.
  4. While whisking, slowly drizzle in the olive oil until emulsified.
  5. Cut the tomatoes and cucumbers into ¼-inch dice and shred the romaine. Cut the yellow bell pepper in half, discard the seeds, and cut into ¼-inch dice. Peel and grate the carrots.
  6. To assemble the parfaits, layer the bottom of each of 4 parfait glasses with ¼ cup diced tomatoes, followed by ¼ cup diced cucumbers and ½ cup shredded lettuce.
  7. Gently press down with the back of a spoon to pack the ingredients.
  8. Top with 2 tablespoons of the yogurt mixture, ¼ cup of the diced yellow pepper, and then ¼ cup of the shredded carrots.
