Magic Summer Sauce #Recipe @PegCochran

I know summer is officially over, but it's still warm enough in many parts of the country to grill.  Plus you can always use a grill pan inside.  I found the recipe for this sauce on Kitchn.  It can be used on any number of things and works especially well to dress up a plain, grilled chicken breast.  I could see putting it on pork tenderloin, hamburgers, turkey burgers maybe even some fish.

It's so easy to put together, too, and makes it look like you fussed!

  • cup plain yogurt
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons Sriracha or Asian chili-garlic sauce


  • Combine all the ingredients and whisk to blend thoroughly.

A Park Avenue princess discovers the dark side of 1930s New York when a debutante ball turns deadly in this gripping historical mystery for readers of Victoria Thompson, Anne Perry, and Rhys Bowen.

Manhattan, 1938. Tired of being trapped in the gilded cage of her family’s expectations, Elizabeth Adams has done what no self-respecting socialite would think to do: She’s gotten herself a job. Although Elizabeth’s dream is to one day see her photographs on the front page of the Daily Trumpet, for now she’s working her way up as the newsroom’s gal Friday.

But fetching coffee isn’t exactly her idea of fun, so when veteran reporter Ralph Kaminsky needs a photographer to fill in for a last-minute assignment, Elizabeth jumps at the chance. At the Waldorf Hotel, Elizabeth is tasked with tracking down the season’s “It girl,” Gloria DeWitt, who will be making her society debut. Working her own connections to New York’s upper crust, Elizabeth manages to land an exclusive interview with Gloria.

Then Gloria’s stepmother is shot dead in a Waldorf bathroom, placing Elizabeth at the scene of a headline-worthy scandal: “Murder of a Society Dame.” Now Elizabeth will have to get the scoop on the killer before her good name gets dragged through the gossip columns—or worse. . . .

From a Goodreads Review:

Readers will root for Shelby to solve the case and stay on the edge of their seats until she does.”

  1. Sounds so good and so easy peasy that i am going to ask hubby to make one night. Congrats on the covers of your books I have seen them but yet to read a print copy but i will.

  2. Is this applied before or after cooking?
    Flavors could be added to taste for sure.
    With some curry powder you have a cousin to tandoori.

    1. Libby, you put the sauce on after cooking. But I imagine you could use it as a marinade for chicken before grilling. I love the idea of adding curry powder.
