About 1 1/2 cups

TIME
Active Prep: 10 min


INGREDIENTS
  • 1 cup plain yogurt*
  • 2 Tbsp. buttermilk or milk (optional)*

NOTES

*Use Greek yogurt for a thicker, more authentic option; avoid low-fat or fat-free yogurts. To make a dairy-free version use a dairy-free yogurt and milk alternative. Adding buttermilk or milk yields a thinner, dressing-like sauce.

For a vegan version:

  • Substitute yogurt and milk with dairy-free products.


DIRECTIONS

Combine all ingredients together in a medium bowl. Stir until thoroughly mixed. Can be served immediately, but flavors are even better if sauce is chilled in the fridge for an hour or so.



SERVING SUGGESTIONS

Serve chilled on gyros or our Za'Atar Spiced Meatballs or Sweet Green Pea Falafel. Use as a dressing for our Grilled Greek Salad with Dill Quinoa. Recipe easily doubles.
