I have some exciting news: local food advocate Susan Berkson, host of the show "Fresh and Local" on AM950 The Voice of Minnesota, will be interviewing me on Saturday at 8 am. (Actually, my segment will start some time after 8:30) Every week, Berkson and her co-host Bonnie Dehn (a.k.a. the Minnesota Herb Lady) explore the lcoal food scene and culinary culture of Minnesota. And this week I am the guest!! What an honor! And a thrill!
I must admit, though, that in spite of my excitement, I am extremely nervous. It's not everyday I get to be on the radio, and not everyday I get to converse with such well informed advocates of Minnesota foods. Berkson and Dehn are passionate about food, cooking and fresh ingredients in general. I am most looking forward to talking about my journey towards healthy living and explaining the ways in which I approach cooking.
On another note, here is a simple yogurt dressing made with some of that greek yogurt I got from Stonyfield Farms. I added tons of scallions for a little kick mellowed out by small amounts of honey and balsamic vinegar. It is served here with cucumbers but last night, we had it on oven-baked fish in pita bread.
Scallion Yogurt Dressing
1 cup plain fat free greek yogurt
1/2 cup chopped scallion (green and white ends)
2 tsp honey
1 tsp balsamic vinegar
Combine all of the ingredients, mix well, and serve with fresh vegetables or in sandwiches.
