Spicy Yogurt Sauce... Dip?
I'm guessing you can already see my conundrum with this saucey dip! I dip cucumbers in it and sometimes chips. Other times, I spoon it onto a baked potato or a grilled chicken breast. All I can say is I make this about once a week and keep it in a Tupperware in the fridge and it disappears in no time.
The kick of heat comes from the "ZHOUG" sauce mixture, which is made with crushed peppers, coriander, garlic, and black cumin. If you have a Middle-Eastern grocery store near you, then you may be able to get your hands on the fresh insanely spicy stuff that my Mother in law, Liora, loves. Me on the other hand, I prefer the milder version that Trader Joes has begun to carry this past year. This recipe has been developed with the TJ Zhoug!
-Fage Greek yogurt 2% (1 container)
-Zhoug sauce (start with 1/4 Cup and add more to taste)
-Lemon juice (1 juicy lemon)
Mix all ingredients together and season with salt and pepper.
So how spicy do you like your spicy?
