We all know yogurt as a delicious companion to berries, granola, and other sweet pairings. But yogurt can just as easily be a savory treat, too. In fact, across the globe, it is more often used as a savory rather than a sweet food, blended with herbs and spices and served with meats and veggies in countless variation across countries and cultures. Whether you use plain store-bought, or homemade yogurt, this versatile yogurt dip is an easy, delicious introduction to the world of savory yogurt. Straining the yogurt creates a rich, creamy texture; luscious and healthy at the same time. Dig in!
