Chili and
Yogurt Salsa

You possibly believe that you will taste a salsa that is full of contrasts but the reality is that you will taste the opposite. Although ingredients with opposite flavors are used in the preparation, when mixed they balance in harmony.

The yogurt is a bit acidic but in this recipe honey is used, which attenuates the yogurt’s acidity. Chili is also used in the salsa but the yogurt’s creaminess attenuates its hotness and strong flavor. It really is
a light, creamy and very balanced salsa .

The chili and yogurt salsa also has a special touch because mint leaves are used in the preparation. The best use that can be given to the salsa is in dishes that have beef or pork – what the salsa is going to do is to give softness and freshness to the dish.
