Yogurt Mint Sauce

Tess Geer


I use this sauce multiple ways; with Moroccan cuisine, as a salad dressing, a dip, an accompaniment for pork, lamb or curries and as a condiment on gyros and other pita sandwiches. It's especially good with spicy dishes. A healthy and very versatile sauce! The preserved lemon is optional but I love it. I have posted a recipe for Moroccan Preserved Lemon on Just A Pinch. It's very easy to make.
