Salon Kitchen Challenge: Yogurt

Rate: 3 Flag

In honor of the Super Bowl, we asked for your favorite chili recipes last week. The winner was Dave Copeland with his piece on what a Super Bowl cook off taught him about how to make the best chili recipe (first tip: simple is best). We also had three alternate winners: Grace Hwang Lynch with her Chinese New Year chili, Linda Shiue with her Chipotle chili ragu with polenta, and Cathy Elton with her five-chili vegetarian chili. Honorable mentions went to the great entries from Lisa Barlow, Paul Hinrichs and Kolika Elle Kirk. Be sure to check out Francis Lam's full wrap up on Salon here.

This week, we're relinquishing the cholesterol-heavy favorites of various American holiday traditions and moving into a slightly healthier food group: yogurt. But don't wory, it doesn't have to be that diet food variety of yesteryear. We seem to have finally embraced the rich Mediterranean tradition of yogurt. So, give us your best recipes for yogurt-infused foods, be they sauces, parfaits or ice cream dishes.

Be sure to tag your posts "skc yogurt" and post them by 10 AM EST on Monday, February 7th. 

Please note that by participating, you're giving Salon permission to re-post your entry if it's chosen as a winner, and acknowledging that all words and images in your post are your own, unless explicitly stated. Adaptations of existing recipes are fine, but please let us know where the original comes from. And if you'd like to participate but not have your post considered for republication on Salon, please note it in the post itself. Finally, if you would like your piece, should it win the contest, to be cross-posted on Salon under your real name, please include that information in your post. In other cases, your story will be republished under your OS pseudonym.

Having recently discovered organic Greek yogurt, I think this is a great idea.
I am lactose-intolerant and do not like dairy. I hear yoghurt is good for this, no?
