Optional, you can sprinkle some chopped nuts over the top of this Greek yogurt recipe and honey,good choices are walnuts or pistachios.

Serve immediately.

Greek Yogurt and Honey

Greek Yogurt is great to use as a cream substitute in sauces or curries, it's much lower in fat than cream yet still gives the same creamy taste, just turn the heat off and let the dish cool slightly before adding the yogurt (so it doesn't curdle) and then stir it in.

This yogurt is so versatile.

Try the most popular dip in Greece - Tzatziki, made with Greek yogurt, garlic and cucumber.
