This lovely, chilled dip (possibly, my new favorite side dish) is made with plain Greek yogurt, diced cucumbers, raisins, fresh herbs, and chopped walnuts. It is the perfect accompaniment to grilled fish. It is also pretty amazing over toasted bread, topped with plenty of fresh dill. Of course, you might as well just eat it by itself.
Further, I am happy to report that our oregano has survived. We transplanted some perennial herbs about a month ago. I decided that it would be a good idea to divide the oregano into three small sections to promote a linear, even growing pattern. (Just to note: I still back this decision.) The sections were looking pretty sickly for a while, but have made an impressive comeback in the past few weeks. Check out the photos. Not bad, actually.
Our dill in the other herb garden is also coming along. It might not be as tall as we had hoped by now, but it’s growing pretty decently. Perhaps we might be using too much?
