This is another sauce created for serving with falafel, but really goes well with a great range of savory foods. It's also quite easy to make and no doubt there will be as many variations as there are people making it.


  • yogurt, plain 1/2 cup
  • lemon juice 1/2 tsp
  • lemon zest 1/4 tsp
  • cumin, ground 1/4 tsp
  • cardamom, ground 1/8 tsp
  • cilantro (coriander leaves), chopped 1/2-1 tsp
  • salt 1/4 tsp
  • black pepper 1/4 tsp
  • maple syrup 1/2 tsp
  • olive oil 1 tsp
  1. Mix ingredients in a bowl or dish.
  2. Best served at room temperature.
