Yoghurt salsa is a passepartout, a bit like hollandaise or mayonnaise. It is difficult to find a common, generic recipe because its preparation varies from country to country, as well as how it’s used.

Any examples? How about as a dressing for a German potato salad, as a kebab sauce (Middle Eastern) or in the most well-known of them all, Greek tzatziki sauce.

How do you choose the right yoghurt salsa?

As you may have guessed, there are many variations and are based on the aromatic herbs used in the preparation phase.

It’s the herbs that “decide” the perfect combination, how it will lend itself best to seasonal salads, fish or meat indifferently.
