Lemon Garlic Yogurt Sauce for Broccoli

Looking for a Simple Sauce to Serve on Vegetables?

We eat a lot of steamed broccoli and asparagus in our house and are always looking for new ways to serve it. We found this simple yogurt sauce made with garlic and fresh squeezed lemon juice that is so easy to make and really adds a wonderful layer of flavor to green vegetables.

The hardest part to making this sauce is squeezing the lemon for the juice.  I suppose you could try making it with store bought lemon juice but I can’t imagine it will be as good.  If you want to get really fancy, try topping the sauce with some sliced almonds or toasted pine nuts.
