Mike Price of The Clam in New York cooks clams with white wine, garlic and thyme until they just begin to open up from their shell. He gives them a fine chop and combining them with sour cream, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce and cayenne.
One of my favorite things to do with stinging nettles is to turn them into a dip. And my favorite flavors to combine them with are roasted garlic and fresh mint, along with some tangy Greek yogurt. This is easy to make, and so fresh & versatile.
This recipe is a spin on tzatziki, the Greek cucumber dip. It's light, fresh and delicious especially over a chopped salad with hearty chunks of cucumber, radish, onion, hard boiled egg and flaked salmon. It works well as a dip or spread as well.
