Use this lively condiment as a dip, or thin it slightly with water to make a salad dressing. It complements all kinds of roasted and fresh vegetables, such as our Roasted Carrots and Parsnips and Lemon-Pepper Green Beans.


  • 2 cups whole-milk yogurt (not Greek)

  • cup extra-virgin olive oil

  • ½ cup packed finely chopped fresh mint leaves

  • ½ teaspoon grated lemon zest, plus 1 tablespoon fresh juice

  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper


  1. Mix together all ingredients. Sauce can be refrigerated in an airtight container up to 1 day. If making ahead of time, keep mint separate, then chop and add just before serving.
