I don't know about where you are but here in Brooklyn it has been quite hot. There is just no way I was turning on the oven or the stove top last night. So the grill it was!
Being that it was a Saturday night, my fridge was down to the last of the week's groceries. I didn't have much but I did have some produce still. A nice big eggplant, couple of bell peppers, radishes, spring onion...and skewers were just the obvious choice to use them all up.
It was a pretty lazy day for me. I only left the apartment once and otherwise I had been watching Netflix and crocheting all day. Once I realized it was about dinner time I wanted something with little effort involved. So my boyfriend offered to grill if I prepped the food. It was a done deal.
This smoky yogurt dip is a go-to of mine. I make it so often - the flavors are just great together. It can be used as a dip for veggies or meat, spread onto sandwiches, even mixed into mashed potatoes for a tangy and smoky take on the classic!
As for the veggies, you can use whatever you like. I particularly like how well eggplant goes with the dip and recommend you try to make that one of the veggies you use. Other than that, it is really up to you and what your fridge has to offer!
