Herb Yogurt

September 3, 2008

My new favorite thing -thanks to my friend Tracy who made it for us the other night- is herb yogurt. Made with multiple fresh herbs one bite is like a mouthful of your lovely herb garden (minus the dirt, of course).

It makes a wonderful, healthy alternative to sour cream. Just mix plain yogurt with a bunch of whatever herbs suit your fancy. I chose the following:

  • Mint
  • Basil
  • Dill
  • Chives
  • Italian parsley

I added a clove of minced garlic, kosher salt and fresh ground black pepper for some extra spice.

This is absolutely delicious on tomatoes, fingerling potatoes, lamb...but would be fabulous on about anything. We spooned it over the one precious heirloom tomato our garden produced, then we drizzled it with a bit of white truffle oil.

Thanks for the wonderful suggestion for a new treat with all our tomatoes and herbs from our garden.
