This beautiful, Grilled Vegetables Platter with Yogurt Mint Sauce is so colorful and delicious. An easy summer side dish made with asparagus, zucchini, squash, red onion and bell peppers.
Grilled Vegetables with Yogurt Mint Sauce
Grilled vegetables are perfect to make as a side dish with anything you’re grilling such as grilled pesto chicken or grilled salmon, or they can be served as a main dish or appetizer. If you’re entertaining and need more inspiration, make this charcuterie boards and crudités board.
I love this easy yogurt dipping sauce made with Greek yogurt, fresh mint, garlic and olive oil. Partnering with Stonyfield, my favorite organic yogurt brand to create this easy dip with their Stonyfield Plain 0% Fat Greek Yogurt but their Whole Milk Greek Plain would be great too. I have spearmint growing wild in my garden which gives this dip a sweet freshness I love, but honestly any fresh herb such as chives or parsley would also taste great.
Why Purchase Organic Dairy?
- It’s better for you. Because it comes from cows that are actively grazing on grass, as nature intended. Organically raised cows spend their days outside on pasture so the milk they produce is significantly higher in Omega-3 fatty acids and CLA (conjugated linoleic acid), heart-healthy fats that can help lower bad cholesterol and increase good cholesterol. There’s also compelling evidence that many organic fruits and veggies are more nutritious, too.
- It’s better for our children’s health. Research has demonstrated that an organic diet can dramatically reduce pesticide levels in kids’ bodies.
- It’s good for the planet. One of the main goals of organic farming practices is to avoid soil contamination as well as rivers, drinking water, and air with toxic persistent chemicals.
- It’s also better for the farmer and their neighbors, as they aren’t exposed to potentially carcinogenic herbicides.
- It’s better for the bees.
You can make the yogurt dipping sauce a day ahead, it will last 3 to 4 days refrigerated.
