I love this with grilled or roasted veggies! Non-fat yogurt and sour cream work just as well!
- 1 cup cilantro leaf
- 1⁄2 cup fresh parsley leaves
- 1⁄3 cup chopped green onion
- 2 cloves garlic
- 1 tablespoon lime juice
- 1⁄2 cup plain yogurt
- 1⁄2 cup sour cream
- salt and pepper
- Add the first five ingredients to the blender or food processor and puree until chopped add the yogurt and sour cream and blend until smooth, adding as much salt and pepper as you like.
I feel like this is one of the most delicious things I have ever put in my mouth. Oh. My. Word. I even made it with all non-fat yogurt, and without the parsley because I didn't have any, and it is still incredibly good. I let it sit in my fridge for a day before eating any of it, and it got very thick and the flavors melded beautifully.
This was a flavorful, fresh-tasting recipe. I used low fat yogurt and sour cream and it was still creamy and thick. I also used a bit less cilantro than the recipe called for but the cilantro flavor still came through. I served this on roasted vegetables and jasmine rice. Very refreshing.
A nice recipe for a summer salad. Make it more low cal and low carb with low fat sour cream and no fat yogurt. A recipe that would work well with a variety of herbs such as lemon basil, chives, etc.
