I like cumin. I like yogurt. I liked this. I used it on broccoli slaw. It was pretty good. I gave it 4 stars because if you don't like cumin or yogurt, you will not like it.

Sorry, I just did not like this. It did not have much flavor, mainly just tasted like yogurt and cilantro, even though I kept adding more of the sweet chili sauce. Not a bit hit.

It does have just a bit of spice, as advertised. I used it on a broccoli-carrot slaw, and it was good, but really thick (I used greek yogurt). It is a good baseline, and there's plenty of room to spice it up more.

I enjoyed this recipe. I made it with fat free plain greek yogurt. I think this makes a very refreshing dipping sauce also. To make this a "spicy" dressing, you can add a 1/4 teaspoon to 1/2 teaspooon sriracha sauce.

Not bad.

I made this because I was doing tandoori chicken on the grill. I was just going to do some rice and cucumber slices, but when it came down to it I felt like a proper salad. I put in what I had in the fridge: endive, green onion, and cucumber. Used this salad dressing on it, and man, was is delicious! I didn't have fresh cilantro but used tubed. I wouldn't change a thing. (It wasn't very spicy, but I'm okay with that, especially on a salad.)

I used plain greek yogurt and followed the recipe exactly. The result was cumin flavored yogurt and definatly not spicy. I ended up adding an extra tablespoon chili sauce and a tablespoon on mayo and tossed it was zucchini slaw. Not something I'll be making again

Nice for lunch, especially if you want something creamy but still want to be healthy. This would also be good as a dip for a veggie plate. Thanks for sharing!
