In Greek: σάλτσα γιαουρτιού, pronounced SAHLT-sah yee-ah-oort-YOU

This is a delightful sauce that is delicious on baked potatoes, and it doubles as a salad dressing. Use it on sandwiches, pita wraps, or wherever your imagination takes you.


  • 16 ounces of thick strained yogurt *
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon of pepper
  • 2 tablespoons of red wine vinegar
  • 5-6 leaves of fresh mint
  • 1/3 cup + 2 tablespoons of mayonnaise


* If you can't find Greek strained yogurt, strain it yourself.

Put all ingredients except the mayonnaise in the blender and blend at low speed until smooth. Transfer to a bowl, whisk in the mayonnaise, and serve or cover and refrigerate until ready to use.

Low Fat Tip: Use low fat yogurt and mayonnaise to bring the fat count way down.
