The gardens are planted, the weeding is done (for now!) and it is time to enjoy the first of the garden’s harvest. Fresh leaves of all kinds are poking up in my garden, perfect for pairing with radishes, asparagus, strawberries, and other early summer fruits and veggies. To top it all off, here is a quick and easy yogurt-based salad dressing.
Yogurt & Herb Dressing
- plain yogurt
- fresh lemon juice
- fresh herbs (I love this dressing with mint)
Pour some plain yogurt into a glass jar with a lid. (You don’t really need to measure, think about the size of the salad you need to dress and then eyeball it.) Add some freshly squeezed lemon juice, and some freshly chopped herbs. Put the lid on and shake the bottle. If the dressing is too thick, add a little more lemon juice. If it’s too thin, add a little more yogurt.
Toss it with your salad and enjoy!
