This week, I finally tried a recipe from Jerusalem, the gorgeously photographed cookbook authored by Yotam Ottolenghi and Sami Tamimi. We are going to London this summer and I am SO excited to try one of Ottolenghi’s restaurants.  (If you have any London recommendations, holla at me!!) From the cookbook, I made the turkey and zucchini burgers with green onion and cumin ~ and they were delicious.

In the cookbook, the suggested accompaniment for these burgers is a sour cream, yogurt & sumac sauce.  I didn’t have any sumac, I wanted to lighten up the sauce a little bit and I also had a mighty ripe avocado sitting on my counter.  So, I combined 2% fat greek yogurt and the avocado with a little red onion, some fresh mint and lemon juice.  The result is a simple and refreshing dip that reminds me of tzatziki.  You could have it with your veggies as an appetizer or use it as a sauce for your grilled fish or chicken.  It is pretty versatile and a good use of some ingredients you may have lying around waiting to be used 🙂

You can find the easy recipe for this Greek Yogurt and Avocado Dip with Fresh Mint below. And with that, here are some links I have been loving this week!!
