I made this for ZWT 6's Tour of Greece and thoroughly enjoyed it. It has a nice tang and went well with "Recipe #428609". Thanks for posting!

Very tasty dish. I'm not sure if mine turned out exactly right. It seemed that the yogurt clumped up. We ate it anyhow and throughly enjoyed it. Will try again and will wait a litte longer before adding the yogurt. Made for ZWT4.
