Creamy Garlic Mint Feta Sauce

Creamy Garlic Mint Feta Sauce

Yield

Serves 12 (serving size: 1 1/2 tbsp.)

If you’re a fan of Greek tzatziki, you’ll love this version that gets nice briny flavor from feta cheese. Fresh mint rounds out the flavors and softens the garlic. Try it on lamb, chicken, or salmon.

Ingredients

  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1/8 teaspoon plus 3/8 tsp. kosher salt, divided
  • 1 cup plain whole-milk Greek yogurt
  • 1 ounce crumbled feta cheese (about 1/4 cup)
  • 4 teaspoons chopped fresh mint
  • 4 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill
  • 1 tablespoon water
