If you remember my craving for tabouleh a couple of weeks ago, I’m happy to report that I finally got around to it. This week’s feature recipe for French Fridays with Dorie is tzatziki, the tangy creamy yogurt cucumber dip that is kissing cousin with raita. Except in lieu of taming the heat of Indian curries, it is enjoyed as a refreshing accompaniment to more Mediterranean flavours. I was going to prepare a dinner of mezzes but I got tired after the tzatziki and tabouleh were done. Recovering from a 24 hour flu and still looking for my appetite have that effect on me.
Instead of an array of small dishes served hot or cold, I stuffed a couple of whole wheat pita pockets with the dips and called it a night. Who knew chopping and stirring could be so tiring? Slacking off feels awesome!
