Why You’ll Love this Recipe

This creamy yogurt sauce is a refreshing topping for meat, rice, and lentil dishes, and it also pairs well with salad, fresh vegetables, and hummus on a mezze plate.

We've substituted radishes for the traditional cucumber in this recipe, because they still have the same fresh veggie crunch, but they've got more flavor!

This recipe also features toasted walnuts, which give it a richer, deeper flavor.

You can make a large batch of it and store it in the fridge for the week and add it to multiple dishes.
