This is a versatile sauce that goes well on gyros, salads, dips and, falafel. I keep it chunky for gyros, and I blend it for the others.
- 8 oz. plain greek yogurt
- 1 cup cucumber, peeled and chopped
- 1 tablespoon olive oil (2 for salad dressing)
- 1 tablespoon garlic paste
- 1 tablespoon dill
- salt and pepper to taste
Combine all ingredients and serve. It doesn’t get much easier than that. :)
Homemade cranberry sauce is ridiculously easy to make. I like to make it a couple of days in advance.
- 2 cups cranberries
- 2 tablespoons Cognac
- 1 cup brown sugar
- ¼ cup orange juice
- 3 allspice berries
- 2 cloves
- 1 black peppercorn
- dash of red pepper flakes
Combine all of the spices in a cheesecloth and tie in a knot.
Bring all ingredients to a boil in a saucepan over medium high heat. Reduce to simmer, stirring often for 20 minutes.
Discard the cheesecloth bundle and cool.
