Yoghurt And Dill Dressing

Greek yoghurt is always stocked in our fridge as is a huge bottle of whole egg mayonnaise. I combine the two to use in a multitude of dishes.  A little garlic, salt and pepper, squeeze of lemon juice and a handful of finely chopped herbs transforms the yoghurt and mayo into something pretty special.

The dressing can be dolloped onto grilled chicken or fish, tossed through a potato salad or served with a big platter of roasted vegetables.  Delicious on hamburgers too.  Use different herbs, like mint, basil or even some finely chopped shallots, depending on what you have and what you are using the dressing in. Sometimes I need a thinner consistency and will just add a tablespoon or two of water and stir through.  A good basic recipe to have in your repertoire as it very simple and can really lift a meal.

    Thanks so much for that Natalie – I also really love something I’ve recently discovered… It’s just a combination of finely chopped coriander and mint in natural yoghurt. It’s just so delicious – can’t get enough yoghurt!

      Yum! Greek yoghurt, finely chopped shallots, coriander and mint is fantastic with grilled chicken. Nigella has a recipe like that and you serve it with couscous. I haven’t made it for ages but it was in high rotation in our house for several years! I’m inspired to make it again.

    I am heavily into the ‘yogurt’ dressings at the moment too. So simple and yummy and a little bit healthier I like to think. 🙂
