This is a very delicious appetizer with fresh zucchini. If you have no time to prepare a full meal, this snack is the best. You can serve it as a salad, and also as a dip. Great with white bread.

I would definitely classify this as a sauce and not a salad but that doesn't diminish the ease and relative tastiness of the recipe. (Almost like a mild tzatziki sauce.) It was extremely good but also a bit runny so I'm glad that I went w/ Greek yogurt as well as using a third less than the amount of yogurt called for in the recipe. It couldn't have worked out better that the night I prepared this I was also making "Baked Falafel" from here and the 2 together were divine! (I also toasted the walnuts b4 stirring them in.) I think next time around I'll go lighter yet on the yogurt add a squirt of lemon and perhaps some minced garlic. (My husband smeared his Zucchini onto warm flat-bread b4 adding sliced olives crumbled Feta and the Falafel and I heard lots of "mmmms" a la "What About Bob?" in b/t bites.) My toddler on the other hand flung a handful of "kookini" across the table b/c she's going through an anti-green-food-phase. Keep the great recipes coming Asli! Read More

I love this salad. It is also deliscious with dill chopped in it. U can also melt a teaspoon of butter and olive oil and add some paprika to that to make it red and spoon it on the salad. Yummy either way. Read More

i make this all the time. I serve it as a side dish with heavy bar-b-que or take it as a dip with crusty bread pretzel chips or carrots. I add a tablespoon of crushed garlic and a dash or two of hot sauce just to let it stand on its own. Always better the next day. Read More
