This recipe is perfectly named -- it tastes like summer! Such a fresh flavour. I was amazed to find quark for the first time ever in an Australian supermarket, so I went looking for things to make with it. I had fresh parsley and mint on hand, but used dried dill, Greek yogurt (nothing low-fat about that) and 1/2 teaspoon of cumin. I buzzed it all up in the food processor and because it was still quite thick I added another 2 tablespoons of lemon juice. Served with celery and carrots sticks.
4 1/2 stars. A good snack for DD (toddler) and I. I did use what I had on hand which was Philadelphia herbs and garlic cream cheese and Balkan yogurt. I had to omit the dill as I didn't have any but I know it would be delish with it. I used fresh mint from the garden, freshly squeezed lemon juice & sea salt plus all the rest. I served it with the suggested vegetables in the intro except for the peppers as we don't care for them. Made for ZWT6 Germany/Benelux region, for my team, The Ya Ya Cookerhood!
Well, *Sommerlicher Krauter-Dip* is the most wonderful dip, and now I wish I lived in Germany! I was able to obtain "Quark" from our local NY State Wegmans, and it is terrific!! Very tasty, and less heavier then cream cheese. I used the cream version instead of the low-fat yogurt and added the fresh mint which was the first choice. What a whopper of a taste. I think I ate a whole cucumber (sliced) and kept dipping the veggie right into the the bowl. NO double dipping :) Also loved the use of green onions, there is nothing better!!

This was a very tasty dip. I used cream cheese instead of quark and cilantro instead of mint. I served the dip with fresh veggies and chips.
Made using cream cheese for the quark and coriander for the mint. This is a beautiful dip with great flavor that looked and tasted great with the platter of fresh veggies. A definite keeper!
Twis - "Sehr Gut" said my German hubby! I did use Quark (found it at gourmet store) and low fat plain yogurt - superb!!
