“This is always a hit for potlucks in the summer, but my husband loves for me to make it at home all the time. I like to pair it with falafel balls, stir fried tofu, or any other Greek, middle eastern, or vegetarian dish. It taste delicious served on a bed of crisp, whole romaine leaves for a light lunch or dinner. Adjust the jalapeno pepper to taste. Enjoy!”
