Cilantro Garlic Sauce
Good with chicken kebabs or grilled shrimp

Servings: Makes 2 cups


3 cups plain yogurt, drained to make yogurt cheese
3/4 cup finely chopped cilantro
4 1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 1/2 teaspoons finely chopped garlic
3/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper*

Thicken 3 cups regular plain yogurt by draining it in a paper-towel-lined sieve or cheese cloth lined collander, chilled, at least 1 hour and up to 1 day.

Stir together all ingredients with 1 teaspoon salt (or to taste), then chill, covered, at least 30 minutes (for flavors to blend). Bring to room temperature before serving.

COOKS NOTE: This has a little kick, so if you are sensitive to heat reduce the cayenne pepper.
