A Sauce for All You Easter Lamb Lovers

I know many of you will likely be serving lamb for the upcoming Easter feast and wanted to give you a nice quick sauce with a Greek influence that could spice up the normal holiday meal. I would recommend this if you are grilling, roiling or roasting. Although braised lamb is delicious, the braising liquid should serve as a substantial enough sauce.

This cool garlicky sauce helps to balance out the big flavors of lamb and really compliments a number of lamb dishes. It would be great on homemade Gyros.

Here it is and it's so simple:

Serves 6 to 8

1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt . Dannon or any other plain variety would work too.

The juice of half a lemon

1/2 tsp spoon of minced garlic

Salt & pepper to taste.

Simply mix all of the ingredients well. Use a juicing device to juice the lemon, or juice over a spoon to catch any of the seeds. A quick whisk will make the sauce nice and smooth. I divided my original recipe by two for this post because the full version makes almost an entire bowl, which is a lot.

Happy Eating,

- Teddy
