8 servings (serving size: 1 cup potatoes and 2 tablespoons sauce)

Add watercress, basil, and mint to a yogurt base for a fragrant, fresh-tasting sauce you can make up to 2 days ahead. Serve this versatile dish alongside chicken, beef, or lamb. You can also use the sauce as a dip for vegetables.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 450°.

Step 2

To prepare sauce, place first 9 ingredients in a food processor or blender; process until smooth, scraping sides. Cover and chill.

Step 3

To prepare potatoes, combine potatoes, oil, pepper, and salt in a jelly roll pan or shallow roasting pan coated with cooking spray, tossing to coat. Bake at 450° for 35 minutes or until tender, stirring occasionally. Serve with sauce.

I'm rating the sauce which I used on tilapia tacos. Yummy. And we ate it as a dip. And will try on roasted potatoes tomorrow. Followed the recipe pretty much. Will probably not worry about sticking close again.

Made exactly as stated. It was fantastic! Even my 4 yr old loved them! We used the leftover sauce on roast beef sandwiches the next night. Wonderful recipe!

I made this with lots of fresh basil and mint. I used baby greens because I did not have any watercress. Took it too a party and EVERYONE wanted the recipe. I just threw everything in the food processor so it was easy. Made a lot so was able to have some left over for a lamb dish.

This is a delicious recipe loved by adults (4) and children (ages 5 & 7), appropriate for both casual and fine dining. For the sauce, I blended the solids (herbs & onions) first, then the more liquid items and the consistency was perfect. I served it with the hoisin barbecued chicken (found here) and was delighted with the results. I have added both to my rotation.
