Creamy Cucumber-Jalapeno Sauce

This tangy sauce is terrific on grilled salmon or tuna, with potato pancakes (latkes) or savory crepes, and even with lamb, burgers and other meats. Greek style plain yogurt (regular or fat-free) is my preference, but you can substitute ordinary plain yogurt or even replace half of the yogurt with sour cream.

1/2 cup plain Greek style yogurt
1 small cucumber, peeled & de-seeded
1 jalapeno pepper, de-seeded
1/4 cup chopped onion
2 Tbs chopped fresh cilantro OR parsley

Place all ingredients in a blender and pulse until pureed to desired consistency. If you prefer a thinner sauce, you can add a little milk or cream (a tablespoon or so) to thin it out.

Zestfully yours,

PS: If you don't have fresh jalapeno peppers on hand, you can substitute a tablespoon or so of Just My Taste Jalapeno Dip.
