Yogurt Mint Dipping Sauce

This would also make a pretty tasty salad dressing or dip for potato chips

We have a ton of mint right now. Also, this would go really well with some lamb meatballs.

Dipping Sauce

  • 1 cup Greek yogurt (nonfat is fine)
  • 1/4 cup mint
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp coriander, ground with a mortar and pestle
  • pinch ground cumin
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • salt/pepper to taste

In a blender or food processor, place mint, lemon juice, sea salt and olive oil. Measure out the yogurt and scoop a spoonful into the blender. Put the lid on and puree. Combine mix with the remaining ingredients and season to taste.

    Now that is quite opportune. :) I need to try mint with yogurt. I’m generally not a big fan of yogurt, but I think the mint might help. Cheers!

    I’m going to see if I can buy a small mint plant and this might be a good thing to make with the leaves when they get big enough.

  3. This dip sounds so good and would be perfect with those meatballs. Just the right amount of minty tanginess. :)

    Sounds really good-I have some mint growing in a pot that I can use for this!

    Yum yum yum! This sounds delicious. Unfortunately, I don’t have any fresh mint growing (well, my roommate did but then let it die), so I’ll just have to buy from the store. Great dip. :)
