mmmmm . . . Yogurty Goodness

Here is something you might enjoy.  Eliza and I had it with dinner last night. It is a rather simple and delicious dish to serve either by itself or with other food stuff (couscous and vegetable curry last night, for example). All you need is the following:

  • Plain Yogurt:  I actually used Greek Yogurt, which has a slightly different consistency and is a bit more sour.  It is somewhat closer to sour cream.
  • Tomatoes: Cherry tomatoes were used last night but really I can imagine using any kind of tomato that you want (I look forward to trying this with some delicious heirloom varieties this summer).
  • Cucumber: I use the long wrapped European style cucumbers because they don’t have wax on their skins.  This is another vegetable that is probably good to use home grown (well that can be said for most vegetables probably . . . or at least from a good local farm stand).
  • Fresh Dill: I think this speaks for itself.
  • Lemon Juice: Just a bit really to add a little citrus flavor.
  • Salt & Pepper

Basically you just need to chop the tomato, cucumber, and dill up rather finely and then mix it in with the yogurt, adding some lemon juice, salt, and pepper.  Then you eat it!  Again, we ate it with a vegetable curry last night, but this stuff is good enough to just serve with some pita bread, or just eat straight with a spoon.  I am glad I have some leftover because it is very good eats.

  1. I think after trying the other type of yogurt that “Greek yogurt” should be a necessity as an ingredient.
