Nutrition & Calorie Comments  

I like this recipe BUT I would use ffsour cream or reg.yogurt instead of greek yogurt,Which I don't care for.Greek yogurt may be a good source of protein but I still don't like it and will buy reg.yogurt instead. Submitted by:

Will make this to go with grilled steak but will try low fat plain or L-F vanilla or lemon yogurt as my 1 experience with Greek yogurt wasn't all that great.

I make something similar except with fresh dill, cumin and a fleck or two of red pepper flakes -- the latter amount depending on whom I am serving it to. I wouldn't use fat-free yogurt -- some fat is good for you, if you buy your yogurt from a quality source. (Plus, there will likely be less sugar) Submitted by:

Excellent. And Greek nonfat yogurt is a wonderful source of protein! As for the comment about fat free food...fat free yogurt is made naturally of fat free milk. So I have no worries about strange additives. I like Dannon Oikos which has only one ingredient: cultured grade A nonfat milk. Submitted by:

This is similar to Arabic cucumber and laban salad. cucumbers, 1 tsp. mint, 1 clove garlic (mashed) optional,salt and pepper. laban is Arabic for yogurt. I grew up on this and I love it in the summer with Syrian salad. Submitted by:

Has anyone looked at the ingredients on "fat-free" foods? Many times the fat is eliminated with more 'harmful' ingredients added to make it taste good. In a nutrition class I attended for 6 weeks, the non-fat foods were to be 'avoided'. Submitted by:
