This fresh, flavorful dish uses our Farmstyle Greek Yogurt twice, as a marinate for ultra tender grilled lamb and in the cucumber dill sauce for an extra rich, creamy texture.

“Tillamook Yogurt is not just for breakfast and sweets. It is a great staple for lunches and dinners. For me, having this base in my fridge becomes a go-to for all meals. It can be used for my favorite smoothie or yogurt bowl, but more specifically, for those savory notes of dips and marinades for meat! That’s what I love teaching people, take that yogurt, and go savory!”
