Ingredients for 4 portions

  • 300 grams of strained Greek yogurt
  • 1 cucumber
  • 1/3 clove of garlic (minced)
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 tbsp of white wine vinegar
  • A pinch of salt
  • pepper to taste

Preparation

First, peel the cucumber. Take a big bowl and a cheese grater, start grating the cucumber using the large blades.

Now, add a pinch of salt and 1 tbsp of the vinegar. Mix well and set aside. By doing so, we let the cucumber release its liquids. We do not want our tzatziki to be watery.

While the cucumber does its job, grab another bowl and mix in the yogurt, the garlic, the rest of the vinegar, and the olive oil. Mix until everything is combined.

Afterward, squeeze the cucumber with your hands in order to remove excess liquid; you can toss the liquid. Mix the cucumber to the yogurt mixture.

Once again, stir it well and add pepper. Taste the mixture and adjust the seasoning if needed. Refrigerate and enjoy.

Note: This dip goes well with carrots, meat, and pita bread.
