Notes

This recipe makes 2 cups, the nutritional information is per cup.

Substitute for Plain Greek Yogurt:
  • Sour cream. This would be my first choice, I make this substitution often.
  • Mayo can also be used.
  • Cottage Cheese is another alternative, the consistency won't be quite the same but it'll have great flavor.

To serve with toasted Naan bread:
  • Brush Naan bread lightly with olive oil and sprinkle with kosher salt.
  • Place directly on oven racks. Bake in a preheated 375 ° oven for 8-10 minutes, or until crisp.
  • Transfer to cooling racks to keep them crisp.
  • Once cooled, slice into triangles for dipping.

Storage:
  • Store in a covered airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days.
