Yogurt Dressing

I have hoarded garlic scapes for the past few weeks. They last quite a while in the fridge and have been showing up daily in our dinners. My newest use for them is salad dressing.

Yogurt Dressing

Heat a small frying pan (I use my 6 inch cast iron) over low heat.
Add 1 teas. olive oil and 3 garlic scapes which have been cut into inch-long pieces (with my overabundance of scapes, I discard the flower since it is a bit tougher than the rest of the stalk, though definitely edible). Saute, stirring occasionally, for 5 to 10 minutes, until softened and starting to brown.

Meanwhile, mix the following:

1 cup yogurt (fat content of your choice)
1/2 teas. salt
1/2 teas. black pepper
2 TBSP chopped cilantro

Add in the scapes and stir. Adjust seasoning if needed.
