This light, tangy and creamy yogurt dressing is featured in the April/May (2015) issue of Fine Cooking and comes from chef Ana Sortun, who owns the celebrated Eastern Mediterranean restaurants Oleana and Sofra in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Sortun pairs the dressing with a Shredded Romaine, Arugula & Cucumber Salad but I can tell you it’s delicious on just about anything, even grilled meats. I love it so much that I already bought Sortun’s cookbook, Spice: Flavors of the Eastern Mediterranean, and am thinking about making a pilgrimage to Cambridge 🙂
It’s a cinch to make. You simply whisk all of the ingredients together.
Then pour over salad greens and enjoy.
