Step by step recipe


Stage 1 - 5 min.
Light herb sauce : Photo of step #1
Peel, rinse and chop 1 spring onion (scallion) finely.

Rinse, dry and chop parsley and coriander . The quantities are approximate: say 2-3 tablespoons of each.

Chop the chives finely, including the flowers if you can to add extra flavour and an attractive touch of colour.

Stage 2 - 1 min.

Put the herbs into a bowl and add 350 g plain yoghurt.

Choose a Greek-style yoghurt if possible, as this has a thick, smooth texture. Otherwise, you can use cream cheese or unsweetened fromage frais.

Stage 3 - 1 min.

Add 2 tablespoons Herb olive oil (or simply plain olive oil, if you don't have any) and the juice of ½ lemon.

Salt lightly and pepper generously.

Mix thoroughly, check the seasoning and it's ready.

Remarks

One interesting possibility with this sauce is the hot-cold contrast: piping-hot baked potatoes, split open with a spoonful of really cold sauce in the middle - simply delightful!

Make plenty at a time, as it is always popular.
