This is a Weight Watchers recipe. I altered it slightly by using Greek yogurt instead of regular low-fat yogurt - and chicken broth in place of water. I also added the step of using a blender to more fully combine the ingredients. Very refreshing and delicious. I served it with a Greek chicken breast and some Quinoa Pilaf. The flavor is very similar to the Greek sauce, tzatziki. You could also take this for lunch with toasted pita pockets, or a pita sandwich. Yummy!
3 cups plain Greek yogurt
2 cucumbers, peeled, seeded and chopped
1 Tbls. finely chopped fresh dill, or 1 ½ tsp dried dill
1 Tbls. finely chopped fresh mint
1 Tbls. snipped fresh chives
1 garlic clove, minced (I put it through the garlic press)
1 tsp. fresh lemon juice
½ tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. white pepper
1 cup chicken broth
Fresh mint, dill or chives for garnish
In a large non-reactive bowl, combine the yogurt, cucumbers, dill, mint, chives, garlic, lemon juice, salt, pepper and chicken broth. Thoroughly mix to combine well.
Place half of the mixture into a blender, and blend well. Return to bowl.
Place in refrigerator, covered, until chilled.
Serve garnished with the mint, dill or chives.
