I was feeling Mediterranean last night, so I threw all these ingredients into my food processor. As soon as I tasted it, I thought of tzatziki, a Greek yogurt and cucumber sauce. I used dill in this version, but I think using a handful of fresh mint would make it incredibly authentic. Even my non-raw parents raved about it!
This is something called “Gia Xao” I recently had at a Vietnamese restaurant I went to. It was so easy and refreshing, I decided to make it myself! Tastes great with a drop of hot chili sauce (the one with the rooster, unfortunately not raw)
Usually I have a vinaigrette style dressing, but I really wanted something creamy. Voila! Even my 13 year old, who gags at most things green, really enjoyed it. I tried to get a pic of the dressing on the salad I made, but it mostly just blended in with the greens. Oh well … it’s still a pretty pic, right. ;)
