This is a great dressing which can be used for many main course dishes, or just as an accompaniment to any main meal.


  • 200g plain organic yoghurt (soy can be used instead of milk)
  • 3 cloves organic garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 Tbsp fresh organic mint, finely chopped
  • 1 Tbsp fresh organic oregano, finely chopped
  • 1 Tbsp fresh organic thyme, finely chopped
  • 2 Tbsporganic lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp extra virgin, cold pressed organic olive oil
  • Sweet paprika (organic)
  • Salt to taste


  1. Combine all ingredients (except olive oil, sweet paprika and salt) in a bowl.

  2. Season with salt to taste.

  3. Leave the sauce to stand for about 30 minutes in the fridge, covered so that the flavours can develop properly.

  4. Serve with a drizzle of olive oil and sweet paprika.

Organic ingredients should be used, as they tend to have more flavour, more nutrients and less of the nasty chemical residues.
