About the Recipe

I admit I have a weak spot for spicy mayo so I've been looking for a healthier way to add some kick to salads and sandwiches.

This yoghurt-based spicy mayo is perfect for dipping veggies, spreading on sandwiches or wraps, or using as a salad dressing. It's a great way to add some flavour to your meals while also getting a protein boost from the Greek yoghurt.

Here's my take on a healthier version of spicy mayo!


1/2 cup plain Greek yoghurt

1 tsp chilli sauce (add more for extra spice)

1 tbsp lemon juice

1 clove garlic, minced, or 1 tsp of garlic oil

1/2 tsp ground cumin

Salt and pepper, to taste

(Optional - if needed, add 1/2 tsp of honey or maple syrup for some sweetness)


Step 1

In a small bowl, whisk together the Greek yoghurt and chilli sauce.

Step 2

Add in the lemon juice, garlic and ground cumin. Stir to combine.

Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Step 3

Transfer the spicy mayo to a jar or container and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to allow the flavours to come together.
