"This is a salad you can keep in your refrigerator until you're ready to serve; just like your summer slaw, but for winter," says Jenn Louis. The crisp vegetables mixed with the creamy yogurt dressing would also be excellent as a filling in tacos.

  2. 1/2 cup skim milk
  3. 1 small garlic clove, minced
  4. 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  5. 1/2 cup thinly sliced chives

  16. 4 ounces crumbled Cotija cheese
  17. 1/4 cup toasted pumpkin seeds
