    This sounds easy and good. I will try the recipe in the summer when I have tarragon growing in a barrel on my deck. Luckily, Greek yogurt is available in most supermarkets in our area.

    I found it really difficult to find Greek Yogurt, so I used Middle Eastern yogurt: Labna. The taste of this yogurt is very strong and not suited towards American taste buds. Wouldn't try this again.
