Five-Flavor Yogurt Dip

Joyce Slaton | Delicious Living
  • Calories per serving: 28

Makes about 2 cups / Modeled after a fantastic sauce I had with lamb cubes at a Turkish restaurant in San Francisco, this all-purpose yogurt sauce hits many notes: sweet, sour, hot, salty, herbaceous, and that mysterious savory flavor the Japanese call umami. Serve with red bell pepper, jicama, and carrot slices; as a topping for baked potatoes; with grilled lamb, chicken, or tofu; tossed in tuna salad; or as a different and nutritious sandwich spread.

  1. Mix all ingredients in a bowl. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour to allow flavors to blend.
