1. Add a spoonful of jam or fresh fruit to replicate popular commercial yogurts. Start with 1 tablespoon per cup and adjust to taste. Cut up, mashed, or pureed fruit or fruit juice, Jam, Jelly or marmalade,Lemon curd.
2. Adding herbs to yogurt is an easy way to make an instant salad dressing, meat topping or vegetable dip. Combinations to try are-
Lemon and dill (for fish)
Oregano and tomato (toss in a pasta salad)
Basil and parmesan (serve with fresh or roasted summer vegetables)
Salt and pepper (use plain or with cucumbers)
Herbs de Provence (brighten up leftovers)
Thyme and sage (perfect accompaniment to roast chicken)
3. Chutney, salsas, and cultured vegetables. Adding yogurt to spicy or strong cultures can tone down the heat and add a creamy base. Yogurt has been used traditionally with spicy foods to cool them off and open up the flavors.
