Courgette yoghurt dip

    43 min

    This dip is very similar to tzatziki. It's made by combining sauteed courgettes with yoghurt, olive oil, walnuts and seasonings. Enjoy with pitta bread, crackers or crostini. It's also great alongside spicy food.

    Quick, easy and delicious  -  30 Aug 2015


    I would definitely classify this as a sauce, and not a salad, but that doesn't diminish the ease and relative tastiness of the recipe. (Almost like a mild tzatziki sauce.) It was extremely good, but also a bit runny, so I'm glad that I went w/ Greek yogurt, as well as using a third less than the amount of yogurt called for in the recipe. It couldn't have worked out better that the night I prepared this, I was also making "Baked Falafel" from here, and the 2 together were divine! (I also toasted the walnuts b4 stirring them in.) I think next time around, I'll go lighter yet on the yogurt, add a squirt of lemon and perhaps some minced garlic. (My husband smeared his Zucchini onto warm flat-bread b4 adding sliced olives, crumbled Feta and the Falafel, and I heard lots of "mmmms" a la "What About Bob?" in b/t bites.) My toddler, on the other hand, flung a handful of "kookini" across the table b/c she's going through an anti-green-food-phase. Keep the great recipes coming, Asli!  -  20 Sep 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
