So last night I had one tasty dinner that didn’t even require any cooking. I was inspired by my visit Saturday to the Ferry Plaza Farmer’s Market where there was a vendor selling tartines with all kinds of smoked fish. I had a nice smoked salmon one that was wonderful. So for a lazy Wednesday evening, I decided to replicate. SOOO easy. Using a nice whole wheat sourdough from ACME bread company, I added sliced tomatoes, sliced red onions, a nice slathering of dill-yogurt dip and of course, some smoked salmon from Trader Joes. This was accompanied by a tomato salad made with a balsamic vinaigrette and crumbled feta.
For the dill yogurt dip you need to have some strained yogurt. If you are pressed for time and have the money use Greek yogurt. To make strained yogurt, just line a colander with a paper towel, dump the yogurt in, and let it sit overnight until the yogurt is the consistency of marscapone. To turn that into a dip, to a half a cup of yogurt, add the juice of half a lemon, a chopped scallion, 2 tablespoons of chopped dill, and salt and pepper to taste. It’s a great substitute for cream cheese or mayonnaise.
