mast-o-khiar1-custom

Mast-o-khiar is such an easy and quick dip to make.  Literally translated the name of this dip means yogurt and cucumber.  It is one of the staples at Persian parties because it is such a crowd pleaser.

I am told, by fellow Persians who love to drink Vodka on the rocks that Mast-o-khiar and said drink are very complementary to each other.  Personally, I am a vodka with a dash of cranberry juice and lemon rind type of girl!

Some people get fancy with this dip and add a few types of herbs while others also add garlic or chives.  I like to make a simple version that is milder in flavor since it doesn’t have any garlic or chives.

Ingredients

1 lb yogurt
