Yep, another Holly Clegg recipe. I do feel sheepish about posting yet another one of her recipes but if you do a Google search on Zesty Cucumber Dip you can find several other postings of this recipe on the internet without any mention of it's source so I hope she appreciates that. I do feel sorry for cookbook authors since the internet has certainly taken a bite out of their business but if the recipes are any good they're going to get out there with or without mention of where they came from.
I was heavy on the vegetables and kept the pieces on the larger size which was just my preference. Since I was only making it for me, I made it the way I wanted it. I made this to eat as a snack with whole wheat crackers. Basically I made it into a little vegetable salad.
I used to bypass recipes using yogurt but now that I can get Greek yogurt, I'm seeking them out. It's a whole different animal than the usual plain yogurt. This was really flavorful and pretty too, although my picture doesn't do it justice. I was losing light and the flash picture did it even less justice.
The rest of the week will be busy - I have recipes I just hope I find the time to post about them.
Question of the Day: Do you snack?
