1/1 Photo of Sarasota's Simple Yogurt, Basil, Lemon Dipping Sauce
This is so easy and quick. I made this for lunch today to go with steamed artichokes which I made with Artichokes Steamed in the Microwave. I was extremely short on time and almost canceled making the artichokes, but found this. What a great way to cook them in just minutes. And they were perfect. Now the sauce is a long time favorite which is just easy. It is wonderful on a vegetable platter, also with fried vegetables as a lighter fresh sauce, grilled asparagus as an appetizer, and of course my "chokes." What a nice light appetizer. There was 4 of us and we ate quite a bit, but I love to make the whole batch and during the week I will add some with steamed vegetables. This is also a nice condiment on soups (my favorite is pea soup), in pita pockets. So don't throw the leftover out.
My Private Note
The ingredient amounts have been scaled to the new serving size. Any ingredient amounts, cooking times, and/or temperatures referenced in the directions still refer to the original serving size.
- 1Yogurt -- The best way to do this if you have time, is to put the yogurt in a piece of cheesecloth in a strainer or colander and then in a small bowl over night (wrapped with saran wrap. This allows the sour cream to drain, so the dip isn't wet or runny.
- 2Personally, I had no time, but I did buy the greek yogurt which is a bit thicker, mixed everything together and enjoyed. Also, I have used this with just everyday yogurt and did not take the time to let it set over night and it was fine.
