There is a chance you are going to ask me what yummly means. Well, Yummly is the name of a website and a free smartphone application that provides personalised recipe recommendations. It’s also an easy way to browse or search for recipes.
Earlier I was looking at Yummly for recipes using carrots, and the search result returned many great recipes to choose from – salads, cakes, burgers, and even a carrot-ginger vinaigrette (!). The nutritional content is indicated, which is helpful.
The recipes published on Yummly are both from individuals who have ‘yummed’ recipes from internet (the recipes you have ‘yummed’ are then saved in your personal recipe box) and from food bloggers.
I try to eat healthy is now a publisher at Yummly, and here is the link to my page. For convenience I added the Yummly button on each recipe of the blog. This means that if you would like to save this radish tzatziki recipe in your Yummly recipe box, you will just need to click on the Yum button located on the right under the recipe title.
So, back to the recipe now! The quantities here are for two persons. This radish tzatziki dip/salad is ready in less than 10 minutes.
