Excellent. We snacked on the veggie/yogurt mixture using pita chips while waiting for the turkey to finish grilling.

I can't rate this since I haven't made it, but I am looking forward to giving it a try. Since I don't grill, I am going to try using rotisserie turkey breast from my grocer. The dressing is the key to the flavor profile, and I am looking forward to using it. I think it would also go very well with lamb, or small meatballs made with ground turkey ground lamb or a combination of the two meats.
