Prep: 30 minutes
Cook: 5 minutes • Serves: 4

Lemon-Chive Sauce

1/2cup Yoplait® plain yogurt or sour cream
2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
1/8 teaspoon salt

Zucchini Cakes

1pound zucchini (about 2 medium), trimmed
1 teaspoon salt
1 large egg
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
2/3 cup French fried onions
1 tablespoon vegetable or olive oil

1. Prepare Lemon-Chive Sauce: In small bowl, stir together yogurt, chives, lemon juice and salt. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.

2. Prepare Zucchini Cakes: With largest holes of box grater, grate zucchini into strainer set over medium bowl. Toss zucchini with salt; let stand 5 minutes. Lightly press zucchini in strainer to remove as much liquid as possible; discard liquid.

3. Meanwhile, in separate medium bowl, with fork, lightly beat egg. Add flour, pepper and zucchini, and stir until well combined; fold in fried onions. Makes about 2 cups.

4. In large nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Drop zucchini mixture by 1/4 cupfuls into skillet to make 8 mounds. With bottom of measuring cup, press zucchini mixture into 3-1/2-inch patties. Cook 5 to 7 minutes or until browned, turning once halfway through cooking. Serve zucchini cakes hot with yogurt sauce.
