Chef’s tip

Prawns can be substituted with smoked salmon, or cooked chicken pieces

I found this recipe on the Fage USA site and it sounds pretty awesome and easy to make. I actually went to the site today see if there was a contact us or suggestion box and was pleased to find a recipe section. I’m always on the lookout for a new, easy to prepare and nutritional meal. They have quite a few recipes that I want to add to my repertoire.

I love their yogurt because it is so tasty and the nutritional values are excellent. I’ve also been using it as a substitute for sour cream for a while now. Izzy totally loves Fage yogurt (with no sweeteners added!). I hope the Fage folks make a kid friendly tube that is easy to grab when you’re on the go.
