Grilled Eggplant & Yogourt Dip Recipe

I’m addicted to Astro Original Greek Yogourt! I tastes good alone, but is also delicious in recipes. I made soup the other day and added a dollop of it in the middle and it was sooo good!!

I recently held a giveaway for coupons for one reader to try out the yogourt and that winner is Rosemary! Congrats- I’m waiting on your email to confirm.

In the meantime, I’m sharing with you a delicious recipe for Grilled Eggplant & Yogourt Dip. It was amazing!

  • ¾ cup Astro® Original Plain Greek yogourt

  3. In a bowl, combine yogourt, eggplant, garlic, lemon juice, oil and salt.
