In the South Arm Community Kitchen, Minoo whipped up 6 dips. These dips are great for game nights with a group of friends. They also made great appetizers.
These dips can be served with baguette, pita bread, corn chips, crackers and assortment of vegetables.
We simply love the great colours of the dips. Can you guess it by its colour?
The first dip is Tzatziki which is popular in Greek cuisine.
Prep time: 10 mins; Yield: 2 cups
- 1 cup Greek style yogurt
- 1 cup finely diced cucumber
- 2 tablespoons freshly chopped dill
- lemon juice to taste
- 2 small shallots finely chopped or 1/2 small red onion finely chopped
- salt and pepper to taste
If you cannot find Greek yogurt which sometimes called Mediterranean-style yogurt, you can make your own substitute with plain yogurt. Just line a colander with a double layer cheesecloth and place over a bowl. Pour in 2 cups of plain yogurt and chill overnight in the fridge. Discard the liquid the next morning. You’ll end up with 1 cup of Greek-style yogurt which is thicker than plain yogurt.
|Combine Greek-style yogurt with finely diced cucumbers, lemon juice and finely chopped shallots.|
|Mix in fresh chopped dill and season with salt and pepper to taste.
Serve with pita bread.
