What ingredients do you need to make herb yogurt sauce sauce?

Garlic: We love the depth of roasted garlic, and mixed together with yogurt and herbs, it is just perfect and really complements all the other flavors.

Fresh herbs: We are using fresh mint, parsley and chives, but you can can also use herbs like fresh basil or fresh dill. 

Lemon: We love the flavor from the lemon zest, and the lemon juice in this recipe.

Yogurt: The creaminess from the yogurt is going to pair so perfectly with the roasted garlic and all the fresh herbs. It’s a really great pairing and tastes amazing!

Serving: Serve with any of your favorite crackers or pita chips. Veggies go so well with this if you want to make a crudite platter. Some options that can be used are snap peas, tomatoes, carrots, radish, and more!

Instructions to make this garlic yogurt sauce

Roast your garlic

  • Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Slice your garlic heads in half, and place on aluminum with extra-virgin olive oil, kosher salt, and pepper. Wrap tightly and roast for about 40 to 50 minutes. When roasted and soft throughout, set aside to cool. 

Blend your dip

  • In a food processor, add in all your herbs, mint, parsley, and chives, and give it a rough pulse. 
  • Next, add in your roasted garlic. To do so, squeeze out the garlic from the bulbs and place in the processor. Add in lemon zest, lemon juice, yogurt, and season with salt and pepper.
  • Start the food processor and slowly start streaming in your remaining olive oil until everything is blended and mixed throughout. It should be thick and creamy. Adjust as needed with olive oil to get your preferred consistency.

Serve

  • Pour into a bowl and top with pepper, a drizzle of olive oil, and flakey salt. Serve with your crackers and veggies.
