Author Notes: This yogurt dressing takes 5 minutes to make, can be assembled, shaken, and stored in a jar, and easily made thicker or thinner by adding more yogurt, or more oil. It can also be jazzed up in countless ways: fresh herbs, spices, roasted garlic, tahini, you name it!EmilyC

Makes about 3/4 cup

  • 2 tablespoons minced shallots
  • grated zest of one lemon
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • kosher salt + freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt (150g)
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  1. In a small bowl or jar, combine the shallots, lemon zest, lemon juice, white wine vinegar, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Let the shallots macerate in the acid for about 5 minutes to relax their pungency. Add the yogurt and extra-virgin olive oil, and whisk to combine (or put a lid on your jar and shake). Adjust seasoning and acidity, to taste. Dressing keeps well (tightly covered in the fridge) for one week.
