Spinach and Yogurt Salad


You can make a meal of this by serving it with wedges of pita bread.


  • 2 bunches spinach, well rinsed and stemmed or 1 package pre-washed baby spinach
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 3/4 cup plain yogurt
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1/4 teaspoon sugar
  • Salt and freshly-ground pepper


  1. Steam the spinach until it is tender and bright green — about two minutes.
  2. Drain, cool, and squeeze it to remove excess water.
  3. Chop the spinach as finely as you can.
  4. In a large bowl, combine it with the remaining ingredients. Mix thoroughly.
  5. Cover and refrigerate for one hour or more before serving.

Serves 4.
