Eleni’s “amigdalosalata” sauce (Yogurt, dill & almond sauce)

My lovely cousin Eleni (excellent lawyer and mother) who lives in the beautiful Heraklion in the Greek island of Crete gives me this savory recipe for “amigdalosalata”.  A fresh and healthy sauce that will get your mouth watering, made by greek strained yogurt, mustard,  mayonnaise, almonds and a good amount of fresh dill (Anethum graveolens).

If you’re looking for a herb perfumed sauce to serve alongside steak, this is the right one. Amigdalosalata doesn’t require any cooking and can be ready in no time. Enjoy!

( Many thanks to Eleni, Filimon & Nikolas for the exciting moments that we have lived together last month)

    • Thank you too! 🙂 I think you’re reffering to tzatziki sauce. Greek yogurt , cucumber and garlic
