Recipe Notes

After grating the zucchini, make sure you squeeze out all of the water.  Zucchini has a high water content, and it's very important that you squeeze out all of the water using your hands and/or paper towels.

 

Tip: Bring yogurt to room temperature to ensure that all ingredients incorporate nicely.  If needed, microwave for approximately 13-15 seconds and stir just to " knock the chill off".
