This is a simple yogurt sauce that’s great on vegetables or some seafood dishes. You can make it with just yogurt, but I usually just add a little mayo to thicken it slightly since the yogurt I use is quite thin.  I like to use the cup attachment on my Hand Blender

 to blend it all with ease and little mess.

Yogurt Sauce Versatility

Here are some optional additions to make the sauce fit your craving

Add some Heat:

1 tsp chopped green chilies, 1 tsp chopped roasted jalapeno or 1 tsp chopped chipotle pepper with a few drops of adobo sauce

More Savor & Tang:

Add 1 tsp of chopped roasted garlic or a tsp of lemon rind

Get creative with your sauces and keep it real! Stay away from the store bought preservative and additive laden sauces.  Making a sauce like this truly can take all of 5 minutes and it’s so much better for your health.

Lemon Chive Yogurt Sauce

This recipe makes about 1/2 cup of sauce. Can store in fridge for 1 week unless the yogurt you use says otherwise. It’s great with my Zucchini & Carrot Fritters or other veggies or seafood needing a lemony sauce.
