Lemon Garlic Yogurt Sauce | Seer Moss

Ingredients:

1 cup plain yogurt
3-4 cloves crushed garlic
2 Tbsp lemon juice
2 Tbsp minced fresh mint
2 Tbsp Olive Oil

Method:

In a small bowl, combine all ingredients. Let chill for at least an hour to let the flavors meld. If the mixture separates, simply stir together to recombine.

    It ‘s a nice recipe. The raw garlic was a bit too strong. I recommend roasting it first. After making it the first time, is was quite thin. I tried it again with greek yogurt and got much better results.
