High Protein Dressing - My Alternative to Mayonnaise

Been looking for my diet lately. Its actually more of me eating healthy.
I have started my "healthy diet"  since the start of 2012 and I believe that I am doing well on it not on my "cheat days". Anyway, I like eating salads and sandwiches I am actually fond of  creating sandwiches and I don't like my sandwich having much mayonnaise on it so I have been looking for some alternatives to it and when I was browsing a while ago on some blogs on fitness and lifestyle I came across with Leigh Peele's blog post : High Protein “Ranch” Dressing from The Extreme Salads and I want to share it with you too. And I can't wait to try this out on my own salad and sandwich. For your convenience I have copied below the recipe.

100g Fat Free Fage Yogurt
 70g Fat Free Sour Cream
 1/2 tsp Dried Parsley
 1/8 tsp Dill Weed
 1/4 tsp Onion Powder
 1/2 tsp Salt
 1/8 tsp Ground Black Pepper
 1/8 tsp Garlic Powder
 2 Tbsp Water
