Yogurt Garlic Sauce

Yogurt Garlic Sauce

Yogurt is used throughout Turkish cooking -- for breakfast, in sauces, over filled dumplings, or in mezes, the small plates that often begin a Turkish dinner.

This basic sauce can be combined with bitter greens, raw greens like purslane or spinach, seasoned with mint and sumac to become a sauce, or simply spooned onto a piece of bread.

Serve over grilled meat or fish, over stuffed vegetables or pilafs, with plain greens or zucchini, or on pieces of warm pita bread.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Whisk together the yogurt, garlic and a pinch of salt until smooth.
  2. Let sit, refrigerated, for 15 minutes to allow the flavor to develop.
  3. Just before serving you can drizzle a little olive oil over the top.
