  • 500 ml (2 cups) full-fat yoghurt
  • 20 cherry tomatoes, cut into quarters
  • 2 tbs chopped fresh coriander
  • 2tbs chopped fresh mint leaves
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • place all the ingredients in a big bowl
  • mix it all through
  • serve as a side, dip or spread on your sandwich bread
  • garnish the bowl with thyme leaves, chilli oil or grilled tomatoes
