From the Test Kitchen

Teaching Note:

You can use any kind of whole wheat bread you prefer, but a hot dog bun makes for easy lunch toting. The Fresh Herb Dressing is a fun dipper, but the sandwich is delicious all by itself.

6 ounce cartons plain Greek yogurt or 1 recipe Yogurt Cheese (see tip below)
3/4
cup shredded carrot
1
tablespoon snipped fresh flat-leaf (Italian) parsley

teaspoon salt

Yogurt Cheese:

Line a yogurt strainer, sieve, or a small colander with three layers of 100-percent cotton cheesecloth or a clean paper coffee filter. Suspend lined strainer, sieve, or colander over a bowl. Spoon in one 16-ounce carton plain yogurt. Cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least 24 hours. Remove from refrigerator. Drain and discard liquid. Store, covered, in refrigerator up to 1 week.

Teaching Note:

To snip fresh herbs, place a handful in a 1-cup glass measuring cup. Use kitchen scissors to snip them into small pieces.

Raspberry Vinaigrette:

Prepare as above, except substitute raspberry vinegar, and add 1/4 cup mashed fresh raspberries.
