Ingredients

  • 2 small yukon potatoes , cooked & cooled
  • 4 hard boiled eggs
  • 6-8 radishes
  • 2 small cucumbers
  • 1 cups meat protein: leftover chicken , grass fed hotdogs, etc..
  • 1 bunch of fresh dill or parsley
  • 4 sprigs of green onions or chives
  • 2 quarts of yogurt , buttermilk, kefir
  • 2 quarts filtered water
  • 2 limes or lemons
  • 1/2 + teaspoon unrefined salt (my pick)

Instructions

  • Dice potatoes, eggs, radishes, and cucumbers. This tool will make the job exponentially easier and quicker.
  • Chop meat protein into small pieces. Chop fresh dill or parsley and green onions.
  • Toss chopped ingredients together in a large bowl.
  • In a large-size jar, combine yogurt or other fermented dairy, water, juice of lemons/limes and salt. Mix well.
  • Pour over the dry ingredients and stir well.
  • Season with more salt as needed. Enjoy cold.

Notes

-To extend shelf life, keep the dry ingredients separate from the lassi. Stir in lassi just before serving.
-If you are avoiding potatoes for health reasons, simply omit them and double the protein for extra sustenance.
-Meat source can be leftover chicken, grass fed hot dogs, or any other clean meat.
