Tzatziki Sauce:


Ingredients:


Produce

  1. Cucumber - 2 cups

  2. Dill, fresh - 1 tbsp

  3. Garlic clove - 1

Condiments

  1. Lemon Juice - 1 tbsp

Baking & Spices

  1. Salt - 1/2 tsp

Oils & Vinegars

  1. Extra virgin olive oil - 1 tbsp

Dairy

  1. Greek Yogurt Plain - 1 cup

Method:

  1. Squeeze the juice out of the cucumber. I just did this with my hands over the sink with a strainer underneath to catch any rogue pieces that fall. You can also use a clean kitchen towel to squeeze it out.

  2. Add the cucumber, Greek yogurt, mince garlic, olive oil, lemon juice, dill and salt to a medium mixing bowl.

  3. Stir until well-combined. Heads up: those cucumber pieces will stick together, especially after being squeezed out. Use your spoon or spatula to break those clumps up.

  4. Serve with sliced veggies, pita bread, pita chips. It also goes great on any chicken, fish, kabobs, pita sandwiches, etc.

  5. Refrigerate leftovers for up to 4 days.
