The recipe is simple and quick.
Tzatziki Cucumber Yogurt Recipe:
500 g. Greek yogurt (it must be dry or strained yogurt, see resource page for how to make your own)
1/2 English cucumber (or a regular one, seeded to prevent excess liquid)
1-2 cloves of garlic, minced
2 tsp. Dill (dried or 1 Tbsp. fresh, chopped)
1 1/2 Tbsp. EVOO
1 Tbsp. vinegar
Dash of salt
Place yogurt into a bowl, either chop or grate the cucumber (I like it with the skin) and place in strainer to again remove any excess liquid. Add the cucumber, minced garlic, chopped dill, oil, vinegar, and salt on top of the yogurt. With a spatula, fold (important to not just stir) all the ingredients together until thoroughly mixed. Place in refrigerator for 1-2 hours for best results or serve immediately. Should be thick, fresh, and a little spicy from the garlic.
Remember, this recipe is very flexible and extremely hard to mess up. If you do not like garlic, leave it out. If you like a lot of garlic, add more! If you don’t like dill, substitute for mint. You decide!!!
I really hope you try this sometime, and please be sure to let me know what you think?
