Why This Recipe Works
- Wonderfully creamy! Using a combination of full-fat mayonnaise and some plain Greek style yogurt gives it the perfect consistency that’s not to chunky and thick or liquidy and thin.
- Adjustable spice level. You can customize the heat level to suit your preference. Make it as spicy as your heart desires or mild if you’re sensitive to spice!
- Tastes good on everything! It tastes fantastic in Middle Eastern food! Drizzle some over chicken shish in kebab rolls or over spicy lamb & chicken kofta with rice. You can also use it as a dipping sauce for spicy meat stuffed pitas (arayes), dressing for salads, dip for your french fries, or a spread for burgers and hot dogs.
