This Potato with Yogurt Dressing is quite rich and flavorful, but much lighter than one would expect. The dressing goes great with potatoes, or just with salad.
I couldn't pass the occasion to wish you our dear readers a very happy New Year!
And it seems so appropriate that to celebrate the New Year I leave you with a recipe for this Potato with Yogurt Dressing that I got from my husband.
About this recipe
When he made this as a yogurt dressing for a salad (have I told you I am blessed with a husband who can cook?) it just blew my mind: it is quite rich and flavorful, but much lighter than one would expect. It goes great with potatoes but would go just as well with a salad. A bit of
not so gentle interrogation later I got a general idea of how he made it.
No recipe though, the man is a tough nut to crack. I started testing and testing, and I arrived at a pretty decent approximation.
Who am I kidding,? It was as good as his. Sorry honey.
Buen provecho, and party on!
