Baking is science and I don't like formulas, but cooking is art and anything goes...and the simpler the better. It's all about less time at the stove and more time at the table. With a forty year passion for food I'm excited to share what I do in the kitchen nearly every day.

Mint Chive Yogurt Sauce

Mint and chives are the best! Year after year they’re the first to reappear in the garden…with no effort required. I like to combine them with cucumber, garlic, and yogurt for a flavorful sauce that works on pork, lamb, chicken, or as a dip with toasted pita.

Peel a cucumber, cut it in half the long way, and then scrape the seeds from each half with a spoon. Finely chop the cucumber halves and combine in a bowl with a handful each of chopped mint and chives, two minced garlic cloves, one to two cups of plain yogurt, a splash of olive oil, and salt and pepper to taste.

For optimal flavor it’s best to prepare at least a few hours before serving. And don’t be shy about making lots, it’s great to have around, and will last for at least a week covered in the fridge.
