My Yoghurt Mayo Salad Sauce

You will need (or what I used):

  • Mixed steamed veggies of your choice and quantity
  • 2 tbsp Yoghurt (I used the mother dairy one)
  • 1 tbsp Mayonnaise
  • 1/2 tsp diced garlic (or grated if you prefer)
  • Salt to taste

How to:

  1. Put the yoghurt in a strainer (I use the small tea strainer) or a muslin cloth and let the water drain.
  2. Steam and drain the veggies. I use carrots, beans and peas normally. Cauliflowers or cabbages once in a while.
  3. While the veggies are draining, peel and dice the garlic. You can add as much or as less depending upon how garlicky you want the sauce to be. For me, 1/2 tsp does nicely for one portion of the steamed veggies.
  4. When the water's drained off from the yoghurt, put it into a small bowl (smaller the better since it does so smear and difficult to get off from the bowl), add the mayonnaise and a pinch of salt - the mayo I use is a bit sweet. This is as per your own taste buds.
  5. And mix with a fork.
  6. Mix with the veggies and eat!
  7. I carry it to work and so I take the veggies and the sauce separately and mix it just before eating.
  8. Easiest thing to do and yet how very tasty. And looks good too! And low cal to boot!

No. Don't take out the mayo completely...reduce the amount.
