Recipe WEEK 1-Savory Yogurt Sauce
(Pro-biotics, Vitamins A, D, Calcium, C, trace minerals)
1 Cup Greek Yogurt (Esti, Straus Creamery, Siggis; Ingredients should be whole milk, cultures. NO guar gum, carrageenan, gellan gum, methylcellulose, etc)
1 Cup finely chopped mixed soft herbs (parsley, cilantro, dill, mint, etc of your choice)
¼ to 1 Teaspoon kosher salt (Diamond brand recommended as it dissolves well)
¼ teaspoon freshly cracked pepper
½ teaspoon toasted coriander, zaatar, or a spice of your choice
Thin by adding 1-2 teaspoons of water at a time and mixing. This can be a thicker or thinner sauce consistency of your preference. Keep thicker for dipping vegetables, thinner as a sauce for fish, chicken, lamb, roasted cauliflower or other vegetables. Great as a sauce for tacos, works well thinned as a salad dressing. Adjust seasonings to taste.
