  1. You couldn't ask for anything simpler to make, and the end result is very tasty. This would be nice with crudite as well as JamiLeigh's other suggestions. I, however, chose to use it on a Greek-style turkey burger in lieu of tzatziki sauce, and it was simply wonderful! Thanks for sharing. Made for Spring PAC 2014.
