Supported a gentleman I work with to make this for his healthy eating club...big thumbs up!-17 Jul 2013

PLEASE do yourself a favor and convert the "1 Tablespoon salt" to about half that or less. Same with the pepper. The recipe is completely inedible with that much salt.-27 Aug 2007


Yummy! One tip: if you use Greek yogurt you don't have to drain first. It is available in almost every supermarket near the regular yogurt.-04 Aug 2007
