Coconut Mint Raita
1/3 cup coconut
1/4 cup fresh mint leaves
1/2 cup greek yogurt
1 T fresh lime juice
1/4 t coarse salt
-grind coconut to fine powder in food processor (I actually keep an extra coffee grinder on hand for these sorts of small grinding jobs-works like a charm!)
-add mint leaves and grind finely
-stir into greek yogurt, adding lime juice and salt until all combined
It was super scrumptious just loaded onto a piece of naan, so I think it would make a fabulous, easy,
and relatively healthy dip for pita chips-YUM!
Also, thinned down with more lime juice (say 4 T or so), it would be a fantastic dressing for summer fruit salad........hard to think about in the midst of this Midwestern arctic stretch we're in, but I can dream.....
I love it when "Hey, what do we have on hand," turns into an inspired dish.
