Fry Sauce

the savory and sweet sauces

This month for the Recipe Redux, we are posting recipes about dressings and spreads. What!? Can those actually be healthy? Awesomely, they can. And they can make healthy foods a lot more enjoyable to eat.

We've made a savory dipping sauce, a fresh herb dipping sauce and a sweet dipping sauce, all based in plain greek yogurt. And they are delicious with sweet potato fries. But we shouldn't stop there. They also would be great on a lot of other vegetables. And the sweet sauce would be delicious with fruit.

Come back tomorrow for the recipe for the fries!

Savory Fry Sauce

3/4 C plain Greek yogurt
2 tsp lime juice
1 tsp freshly chopped cilantro
pinch of garlic powder (you can add more if you like)
1/4 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp salt

Mix ingredients together in a bowl and enjoy!

Sweet Fry Sauce

1/2 C plain Greek yogurt
1 T honey
1/2 tsp vanilla
sprinkle of cinnamon
pinch of ginger (optional)

Again, mix ingredients together in a bowl and enjoy! Easy, huh?

the fresh herb sauce

Fresh Herb Fry Sauce

3/4 C plain Greek yogurt
1 T fresh basil chopped up in small pieces or 1/2 T dried basil
1 1/2 tsp fresh marjoram chopped or 3/4 tsp dried marjoram
1 1/2 tsp fresh oregano chopped or 3/4 tsp dried oregano
1 clove of fresh garlic minced
1/4 tsp fresh ground pepper
1/4 tsp sea salt with iodine
1/2 tsp fresh lime juice or lemon juice *optional
*garnish with fresh herbs or lime zest or lemon zest

Mix all the ingredients together. For best results let sit in the fridge 15-30 min prior to serving. So the flavors can combine.
