    Made this specifically for my other half who does appreciate mint (much more than I do, for sure!) ~ Served it with Peter J's recipe #240446! Thanks for sharing your quick & easy recipe!

    We like yoghurt and mint sauce and I tried this recipe because it was a suggested side dish for Recipe #240446. I used lactose free yoghurt and cream but otherwise kept to the recipe. We all enjoyed the creaminess and wonderful flavours. Thank you Missy Wombat

    Wonderful combination of flavours that I served along with lamb backstrap and a light salad. I used greek yoghurt and one teaspoon of dried coriander because I didn't have fresh. That quantity of dried was a good substitution although I wish I had fresh because it would have added just that touch of extra colour and flavour.

    A variation on tzatziki: similar but different. Creamier because of the use of yoghurt AND cream. I used my favourite creamy Greek yoghurt and a fat-reduced (but still very creamy) cream, finely chopped Lebanese cucumbers (unpeeled) and 3 cloves of garlic. The coriander and the touch of mint flavouring blended beautifully. I used this over a tin of red salmon (drained) and 1 avocado (sliced). Just delicious. Very refreshing and superbly flavoursome. It went SO beautifully with both the avocado and the salmon, but would be a delicious over any salad vegetables. Thank you for sharing this delightful summer recipe, Missy Wombat. I shall be using it often!


I'm an ex-pat NZer living in the tropical Top End of Australia. Which makes it a perfect place to make homemade bread and summer recipes all year around. I experiment on my 3 kids who have grown up trying new Zaar recipes every other day and they are thriving. I'm the lacto-ovo vegetarian in the family and somehow I got roped in to become a Forum Host here at Zaar. So check out the Vegetarian and Vegan Forum http://www.recipezaar.com/bb/viewforum.zsp?f=43 and feel free to join in whether you are a fully fledged vegan or someone who needs to cater for a vegetarian and has no idea where to start. Every year I try to do something a bit different to push the envelope a little bit. In 2005 I learned how to sail a dinghy; 2006's grand passion is mosaics. Check out my blog! Between raising three children, working almost fulltime and trying to pursue my hobbies...let's say that my time management skills have greatly improved over the years! I am also very interested in living a sustainable lifestyle. Essentially I'm finding that I'm getting back to the country lifestyle I enjoyed in my childhood even though these days I live in themiddle of suburbia. To this end I have started gardening although I am a total gardening virgin when it comes to gardening in a tropical climate. I also have a cookbook with a number of recipes you can make from scratch. Living clean and green is good for you AND cheaper!
