tzatziki

This traditional Greek appetizer though is simple to make, it has great flavour. It is light and fresh, and it may also be used as a sauce for gyros or kebabs.

 

Ingredients

1 medium cucumber

Salt, to taste

2 cups Greek or natural yogurt

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 tbsp olive oil

handful of dill

1 tsp dried mint

juice of ½ lemon

Serves: 2 cups

 

Directions

Peel cucumber. Cut in half lengthwise and scrape out the seeds. Grate cucumber, place it in a sieve and sprinkle with salt. Let it rest for 5 minutes. With clean hands squeeze out excess liquid. Place in a small bowl. Add the yogurt, minced garlic, olive oil, chopped dill, mint and lemon juice. Stir until fully combined. Taste and adjust seasoning.
