Tzatziki

A delicious, traditional tzatziki recipe any lover of Greek food can't do without.


Regardless of whether it's served with warm, fresh pita, or with a plate of your favourite souvlaki, a delicious serving of tzatziki is almost mandatory for lovers of Greek food.


For anyone who has not experienced real tzatziki, it's a refreshing, cool dip made with thick, creamy Greek yogurt, fresh cucumber, and garlic. It is wonderful served alongside meats, or as a dip for vegetables, breads or crackers.


Tzatziki is naturally gluten-free, low in calories and saturated fats, and suitable for ovo-lacto vegetarians.

 

TIP: If you cannot find pressed yogurt, strain any plain Greek yogurt through cheese cloth, or a Greek yogurt maker as pictured to the right, to remove as much water as possible.




 

Ingredients

  • 500g (~3, 1/2 cups) pressed plain Greek yogurt

  • 1/2 an English cucumber, peeled and seeds removed

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

  • 2 small cloves garlic, grated or pressed

  • Pinch of pepper

  • squeeze of lemon juice

 

Directions
