*Sommerlicher Krauter-Dip* in German, this recipe is from *Modern German Food* by Roz Denny. A colorful veggie mixture including cucumber sticks, carrot sticks, radishes, yellow & green bell pepper sticks & young celery stalks was suggested to accompany this herbed dip. *Enjoy* !

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.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix quark & yogurt in a mixing bowl. Add next 7 ingredients (garlic thru lemon juice).
  2. Mix well, taste & season w/salt & pepper to pers pref. Chill in refrigerator for at least 2 hrs b4 serving.
  3. NOTE #1: I confess I have not used Quark as an ingredient & do not know if I can get it here in Iceland. However, Roz said "Quark makes a quick light dip & has fewer calories than richer cream cheese." Taking this cue from her, my assumption is cream cheese may be used as an alternative to quark.
  4. NOTE #2: As written the recipe offered a choice of using single cream OR low-fat yogurt. I opted for the latter, but the former may be your choice. Feel free. :-).
